guy broke the state record for them this past weekend...almost 12 pounds, if I remember correctly....seems weird to hold a state record for something that was stocked within days.

Last weekend got out after some new species! Went with my buddy for some white cats on Friday night! We got 6 each! We also caught a bullhead, eel and a perch! 

Saturday I went down to RI for opening day! We wanted to chase the elusive stocked trout as well as bass! Super pumped! Got my first golden rainbow! I forget the other name for it!  My buddy and I both caught our firsts! We got some rainbows to! 

Great weekend!  2 new species crossed off the bucket list

Nice to see that the white cats are still there at that spot. I thought for sure that the end of the warm water discharge would end their holding over the winter here. What's the trick to targeting them?

 We used dead shiners on bottom! That’s it

The salmonoids are so incredibly diverse.  Golden rainbows, golden trout out west, the Sunapee in a very confined area, you name it.  The guys on "Fish or Die" (I watched a few episodes, not going to bother with it again) were in Mongolia for taimen in the last episode. No doubt they'll wind up fishing huchen in the Caucasus, or something ...

As an FYI, for those that are interested. The trout pictured has a few different common names. It is a color morph of the rainbow trout species. Known in the east primarily as a palomino trout. Out here in california they have a similar strain they call a lightning trout. It’s basically a genetic abnormality of the rainbow trout that can be be specifically bred.

What is the next bucket list fish your going after?  I challenge myself to try to catch at least one new species this year. I want to try for weakfish and trigger fish this year.

I was just at that spot (where you caught the white cat) last night. I didn't catch any cats, but I think the river was full of small eels since my baits kept getting gnawed off, leaving just the head on the hook. I caught one eel that decided to be greedy so it got hooked. I used silversides since I didn't have any shiners.
