Here is a picture of a 17 lb steelhead that I caught on the Clearwater River in Orofino, Idaho in October.. I caught her on a yellow chartreuse, size 6 jig (one that we made with your hooks, mold and paint). She was 34 inches long.

November 28, 2016 - Sedgwick County Pond - November 28th 2016 Sedgwick County pond fishing had a great day fishing today these were close to 7 pounds.
From a post to Reports from Kansas Anglers from Kansas Angler Online - September 5, 2016 - Tuttle - Not sure if this is the right place for my fish catch but here she is.
I was fishing at the Tuttle spillway on Friday night with Perch and Bluegill (floating) as always at 18ft and I tied into this guy around 2330. A 45 minute fight hell it took 30 before I even got to see him and another 15 because as soon as I got him topside down he would go taken line again. It was my second largest weighing in at 62lb my my largest flathead was 66lb.

May 1, 2017 -Wolf Creek - 4/28/17 Wolf Creek - We started the morning in the hot water outlet and caught 25 white bass and a wiper on roadrunners with white curly tails. Then we moved to the rocks in 7’ of water and caught 24 smallmouth, 3 crappie and 2 channel cats all on tube jigs. Color didn’t seem to matter. Largest smallmouth was 20”, the crappie were 15”.
Come back later for more photographs from Shawn's Wolf Creek success.
April 24, 2017 - Cheney - Fight the wind, Fight the fish.
Saturday the 22nd I went fishing with my son out at Cheney. We were trying for some post spawn walleye. No luck – just a 10” white bass who went back in to grow up a little bigger. I decided to go out on Monday before the winds got too bad.
Nope they were already blowing at 20mph at 6am. Still no luck on the walleye, but I decided to take one last troll west to east along the dam before heading home, when my pole doubled over like it was snagged on something. I tossed the boat in reverse and pulled in my other line so I could concentrate on getting my lure free from the snag, wait, it has a head shake! Whoop Whoop. I got to use my fish scale for the 1st time in two seasons. This baby was just over 8lbs. And fought like a mule. Weighed him & took my pics and let him back in to grow bigger.
