Lake Middleton Trout, South Island NZ | Category: Fishing Talk

Mark Totzke 3 years ago

So got another nice rainbow trout off my paddle board.
Heaps of fun and this time it didn't shake off the hook.
Although it was a hard fight and it jumped about 10 times.
Each time my heart stopped for a few seconds as I thought I will loose it again.
But the hook was set pretty good. It was caught during the minor time.
Was quite a bit of action on the lake during this period and a few minutes later I hooked into another one but lost it on the first jump.

See that itsaboat - I got a nice t-shirt too
And mine also got the line on the wrong side.

Not a bad trout you got there.

Yeah the jumping takes a bit of practice. But even the best will drop fish when they jump. It is a split second reaction to keep tension on the line.

Yeah...I see the shirt...Now I know why your missus has been stalking me ...She has Gimp-ed me (that will give the Photoshoppers something to Google)...Forgery I say....You pirate !!

It is alright. Yes, I see you Photo Shopped (using Gimp) an up-side-down reel. But that is OK. You know why it is OK ?? Because there is a difference between your T-Shirt and my T-Shirt....ready ??

I make my T-Shirt Look Good !!! hahahaha

itsaboat mate...Life is just a boat and then ya marry one !
