    I couldn't wait!

    Hello everyone. #I wanted to wait until I went fishing this year to post pictures but I don't seem to be able to get out EVER. #Here are some pictures of my brothers and I and the fish we caught last year: #I hope it works! #This first one is of my brother Chuck with a nice Fox River Smallmouth Bass.

    again, more...My brother holding a really big rainbow trout (also known as steelhead) and me holding two perch. You guys have rainbows over there too right? How does this one hold up to yours? Are yours usually bigger or about the same? Boy was that a great fight to watch! Those perch taste better than mana from Heaven by the way.MMMMMM!

    Re: I couldn't wait!

    Last one! Me holding a white bass I caught at Tampier Lake. My brother found that lure only moments before (Red and white spinner) I won't mention the company name. Don't know if that is allowed or frowned upon. It was meant to be! I hadn't caught anything until I tied that lure on.

    Re: I couldn't wait!

    Well, that's it for now. I hope I posted my pictures correctly. I had to scan the photos because I hadn't had access to a digital camera until just recently. I hope you all enjoy seeing what we catch over here. I hope to make many more posts with pictures in the upcoming year. If I did something wrong, please help. I have never posted pictures on the internet before and am ususally pretty awful at all things computer. If they did work, please let me know what you think. Well, until next time, Good luck and good fishing everyone!

    Good stuff El-carpo!
    Great to see some of your pics!
    That carp you are holding is about the size I feed to my pet Jack lol
    That rainbow would be a good size even in Aus.

    Regards, Tony

    P.S. do you fish the salt water over there?

    El Carpo,

    Those of us that fish for trout in Aus can only dream of catching Rainbows that big. Only place you'd get them is privately stocked dams and fishing compounds - not wild rivers.

    NZ may be another option. Bloody great fish.

    Re: I couldn't wait!

    No, Tony, I've never fished in the ocean. I want to try it some day but as of yet, no. Seeing some of the ocean species you folks catch REALLY makes me want to give it a go someday though. The size and variety of your fishery just astounds me every time I look at the photos you guys post. Also, yes, that sure was one tiny carp. I wanted to set it free before my brothers saw it but didn't quite make it. They insisted on a picture to remember the occasion. I've suffered mightily let me tell you! Some of those carp get to be nearly 40-50 pounds in Lake Michigan. It's quite a sight to see them hovering about the docks at that size.

    Ben78, I agree. I've looked at some of the bass pictures posted at this board and I thought that they were quite similar in shape to our white bass.

    Bugman, I'll pass on your kind words to my brother. I'm sure he'll get a kick out of hearing them. He caught it while fishing for perch. Needless to say, his gear wasn't exactly meant to handle a fish of that size. It took a long time to get him ashore. He's quite a fisherman. We were all proud of him and happy he managed to land it.

    Thanks for the kind words again. Like I said, I'll try to post more in the future. Lots more species to show you.

    'Til next time! GLGF

    Maria (Ben),

    Here is the post with the pictures I mentioned. I'll do my best to get more fishing pictures up soon. My stupid schedule is driving me crazy. It has been since March! I'm going through serious fishing withdrawal symptoms!
