The big news is that my son believe it or not caught a 3 1/2 pound Lake Trout. It's big news because (a) he's only 8 and (b) he caught while CASTING with WORMS!. He was actually fishing for Bass -- so catching a trout instead, and such a big one at that is kind of unheard of. It was a huge surprise to everyone. He was absolutely thrilled -- we figure everyone out on the lake knew he got it, just from the screams and the squeals!
In the pic, the 3 1/2 pounder is on the left. The other one, my husband caught about 10 minutes later in the same fashion, was 2 1/2 pounds....still a great size.
