dane county trout hunt

while not considered the "driftless" area, dane county still is pretty darn scenic
We threw hardware (spinning gear) in hopes of getting a few big bites. No such luck, we fought our ass off for just a handful of browns apiece.  I shook a trout a few inches bigger then the one in the picture from under a bridge. He tossed my Rapala when he went airborn and that was all she wrote.

the best trout i could muster up 
I did roll a monster from under a cut bank but it was a short strike on a #6 panther martin that never did connect.

Location- Dane County
Conditions- Ideal
Species Caught- All Brown Trout

    I know what you are talking about when it comes to working you ass off for one trout, I did Saturday. I guess that is what makes all keep going back, to see if we can better ourselves--nice trout

  5. Nice fish! I was actually thinking about doing a spinning trip this weekend. I have never fished the driftless/trout streams of WI. with spinning gear. I bet it was a blast. What photo editing program are you using for that picture? Looks sweet!
