    I know this forum is all about catfishing....and I love that, too. But, I got to brag a bit. I caught a a 7 lb rainbow trout Sunday, July 01, about 1 pm at Fool Hollow lake near Showlow, Az. I went to the visitors center and showed them...they took pics of coarse. Anyways, 2 weeks ago game and fish put 5 incentive fish in the Lake....guess I caught one, or just maybe I caught one that has been around awhile. LOL. This is my biggest fish yet......still looking for a big flat head. By the way it was sooooooooo hot in Showlow all the 5 days we were there.....I am exhausted. Sandy

    I was beat from 5 days on lake no A/c in a tent.......I will post a pic tonight. I have several that the ranger at the park took...then e-mailed them to me....now is how to figure how to post them......I am new to all this. I caught the fish trolling in our 14 ft Lowe boat...a little fast but not wide open....we have a 9.9 motor on the boat. I was using a Rapala split jig....about $6.00 (Bass Pro Shop) on a Walmart Rhino rod....I paid $42 for. I will diffinately try and get the pic up tonight......ok. I am still beat after 10 hrs of sleep. Sandy

    Congratulations on the monster trout. Your thread is usefull even without the pic. But it sure would be nice. It's pretty simple to attach. If you look at the bottom of the page you'll see "manage attachments" just click on that and you should be able to attach the pic. You might want to right click on the pic in the e-mail and send to desktop. Then you;ll be able to find it with a little less hassel. I grew up trout fishing and lived in Alaska for about 6 years. I spent most of my time flyfishing and believe me, a 7 lb rainbow is great. Can't wait to see the pics.
