I have steelhead that average 5 1/2 pounds up to almost 8 pounds, and tigers, brooks, and browns that run from 12 to 20 inches.

My original niche market was raising trophy size trout and selling them whole frozen to taxidermists from coast to coast. Thanks to shipping costs and increased overhead it's just not profitable anymore.

Contact me via P.M. or email at [email protected] if you're interesting in helping me clear out the trout pond. My phone number is also (260) 894-9055. Texts won't work as this is a landline and I don't own a cell phone.

Located near Ligonier, Indiana Noble County. No fishing license needed and no limit.

I'll post some pictures of current fish here in the next day or so.

hey a thread that really dont need pics! lmao  we have seen the footballs you raise there taxi. not to mention the colors.

this would be a great thing for kids!!!  if battling those things in close quarters dont get a kid addicted to fishing, i dont know what would.  we helped him fish out some in "19".  its a blast!  they still pull and jump for being pond fish.

Ran the seine through a very small part of the pond today. Three of about 5 steelhead, 12 browns and 3 tigers in the net with one pass.

Female steelhead ~ 4 1/2 pounds about 22 inches
Male Brown ~ 17 inches
Female Tiger Trout ~15 inches

Steelhead are averaging 5 lbs. up to almost 8 pounds.

Didn't get a brook but they are in the pond

How far is that from Macedon Ny?

About 500 miles I’d guess.

I bet they are, I've only caught a few small ones and was hard to see the pattern.

Syracuse is just down the road about 20 minutes. The wife is a school secretary there after retiring from teaching.

Did you know people from Syracuse New York settled there and named it Syracuse? Same goes for Angola and Auburn which are towns out there. A town north of here, Orland, was first settled by people from Vermont.

We have the second largest Amish community in the United States also 20 minutes away (Shipshewanna) which is a tourist spot. Unfortunately they refuse to wear masks or get the covid vaccine. Really disappointed in my Amish friends. One of them really believes their is a microchip in the vaccine.  ::)

Here's a more intense smaller male from a few years ago.
