View Full Version : New Melones 4-28 MY BIGGEST TROUT!

04-28-2007, 05:22 PM
I went fishing with my dad (doneli) to new melones. we were originally chasing some kokees with no luck at all, we trolled for a while and then we moved to another spot where my dad saw a whole bunch of boats. 10 minutes after we got to the spot my dad hooked a 2.5 pounder that made him very happy!


and about 20 minutes later i hooked this 5 pounder.. my biggest trout ever! once again i got the biggest fish! heres a few pictures of my trophy trout! btw, thats tonights dinner!

P.S my dad couldnt help himself and just HAD to have a picture with my fish!

Congrats on the nice trout. Keep getting after them and I'm sure you'll be putting even bigger fish in the boat. PHM

Nice rainbow's. I would have thought for sure you would have picked up a Kokanee or two. Way to get em and thanks for the report/pics.

FD101 your always outfishing your Dad. Donelli what's up with that? ;D
Great to hear you did well and welcome to the boards FD.
P.S. Why didnt you Dad take a picture of the back of your shirt also? I could have read that and kept busy for awhile. ;D ;D ;D Kneedeep

Looks like you both had a grand adventure out on Melones. Guess Kokanee Power's releasing of the trout pens was a great benefit for you guys (don't forget to thank them). Now you gotta come back, huh??? [smiley=angling.gif] Beautiful photos, will last a lifetime & then some.
It's also time to try for some kokes.
