5 pound brook trout - a dream come true!
« on: Jul 08, 2011, 05:14 PM »

I traveled to Quebec a couple years ago to make this dream come true. My whole life I have wanted a brook trout bigger than 3 pounds. I decided that if I was going to make it happen I had to go where few men go. I drove 3 hours to Quebec then 7 hours into Quebec. Then more than 120 kilometers off the pavement. Then 5 miles by ATV then we walked the last mile. I was so far back in that when the fish hit the bottom of the boat and I let out a victory whoop timber wolves answered me from all around the lake. Guys and gals, it was one of those moments that come only once or twice in a sportsman's lifetime. Is there anything more beautiful on God's green earth than this 5 pound brook trout? ;D

Congrats! Love that extended lower jaw of a very mature male brook trout. I can only imagine what a fish like that looks like in peak spawning colors! Before seeing where you caught it I could tell right away it was absolutely not a previous raceway fish by the appearance of the perfect fins!

Awesome!

The water in the lake it came out of was clear black. The white bars on the front of the fins were gleeming white when I first saw him. The contrast was so vivid I was in awe. The hooked jaw, the brilliant halos on the dark body... I don't know if there is anything more beautiful than a brook trout.

There isn't.  At least not to a fellow lover of brook trout!

Did you know there was a tribe of Indians that considered them sacred and refused to kill them they were so beautiful? They had a legend on how they were created.

Indeed it does hang on the wall. I had it mounted by Mountain Man in Kendall, NY. He did a great job for me at a fair price with good turn around time.
