The 24 Inch Native...
The skated mouse pattern fluttered across the frog water, and right before it hit the fast seam a violent slash took it down
OMR's 6 wt taco'd over and we thought we had the fish of the trip. Target species that is.
Through a set of bolder gardens he kept up the fight until I was able to find a bank to pull over and allow him to put the screws to the fish.
As it came closer, we knew something was up. It was target un-aquired.
Still it was the biggest northern pikeminnow we had ever seen on this river. Native, it should be there unlike the interlopers we were after
So we put away the initial disappointment, hooted, hollered and celebrated the 24 inch native brought to the net.
