Amazing pic. We've seen some up in Newcomb.
That's a whole lot of animal; stand clear.

Couple of brooktrout caught on the first day of summer 2004. Male and Female are natives, caught within the same hour in a small Adirondack pond. No catch & release THIS time.

Hey, nice compliment, wildbrookies. Don't worry, they're out there! A dozen yrs. ago, or so, 18 inchers were considered large. I actually caught 3 last year that were longer than those, but I released them. Caught several more in the same size range (released), some on that same day as the ones in the picture......waddaday!

The fishing in the ADKs has drastically improved in the last several yrs., many ponds have em' in that size range NOW...B-I-O-N !

Yowza! Nice fish. And hey, if a pond can sustain natives of that size, nothing wrong with keeping a couple.

Pondhopper- Nice fish...Maybe someday I'll get lucky and get some that size! What makes you think that they were natives?

<hmmm...clever...potentially a loaded question in an attempt to narrow down probable locations and obtain "target area". Judging by Kens and CWs demonstration of knowledge on previous threads: A reply containing any info, could be analyzed, refined and assimilated (by using external & internal sources) to end up with less than a dozen probable sources...further logic could be applied to narrow it down further. I know I could....for an offhand example: Ken mentioned in a past thread that he carried his canoe 6.5 miles= I have a good idea where that was.... End of thought>

Err....umm......ah.....oh, I don't know Ken......They don't stock Siamese Pond, do they? (heh heh)

Thanks for the compliments everybody. Feel a little guilty about keeping them. They're goin on the wall: " Adirondack Brooktrout 'Mama & Papa' ".

...just asking...

...so I take it the pond you caught those in would not be on the stocking list...

(...Ken starts his over-analyzing process....)

They are a couple'a beauties. I've been into Siamese before at ice out. We caught some nice Rainbows (or as the late Don Byrd would say...spotted carp) and a couple of Lakers, but no Brookies. Why they stock those lakes with Rainbows I have no idea.

I questioned a fisheries guy about keeping larger fish, if it effected the fishery, and his response was keep'em. Only 25% of Adk ponds are capable of self sustaining populations. If your fishing a "stocked" pond, chances are there is no reproduction going on. That said, I keep a fish or two for dinner, and I will keep a mounter someday, but as a rule if they are not foul hooked, they go back. For myself a BIG part of the experience is sitting around a campfire while eating a tasty Brookie.

Not as fat

Here's another one from last summer. Hooked it bad. 22 1/4 incher, yardstick's out of position. Different pond, skinnier fish. I forgot about it, until I was looking at my pictures today- and realized it was a totally different fish from the other 2.

It is winter now let's talk HARD WATER. Lost the biggest brown of my life today. Stuck my arm down the hole to my elbow (what was I thinking?). Kept a nice rainbow and returned the small lakers yesterday. PLENTY of perch fillets in the freezer. Have enough trout for the smoker now. (Location of trout catches withheld for your own safety).
Haven't been on Schroon Lake yet. South end froze over yesterday and I'm sure the lake was moaning today.
