Holy crap, Yvonne - that's huge even by Great Lakes standards.

I gotta get my friend Mikey to "weigh in" on this one - he is the most expert steelhead fisherman who ever lived. Mike can catch fish in a toilet. He'll tell you what it weighed.

Nice work on the live release!

To bad BO ok'ed the poisining of this steam to re-introduce these cutts he thinks belong there. Brookies or Browns have, in the past, been twice this size with the food on hand. This fish is beautiful beyond words.

shouldn't mess with the fish unless you are really hungry and need to catch dinner.... catching them just to drag them out of the water with a nasty hook in their mouth just to tell them that if i want to kill you and eat you I will but today i will just mess with your head and let you go....

Caught a really nice brookie and a bunch of Goldens about as far east as you can catch them as I understand it.

Geez, you go all the way to Alaska, and you can't even come close to Yvonne's fish. ;)

Here's what Mikey said about her beauty 'bow:

"That trout in the pic is safely in the mid teen range, anywhere from 15-18 lb's. If I had to wager a guess I'd say 16."

You got that right Pete...I'll probably never even come close to Yvonne's "fish of a lifetime" rainbow, and I've caught a lot of big rainbows.

The photos make it look small- my guess on that fish was closer to 20 pounds!
