ICE FISHING at Strawberry- Dec 09

I decided to hit up Strawberry this last weekend along with some of the Whimpey family and we had a great day fishing. We picked a perfect day to go as far as the weather. It was sunny and had no wind. We caught some good really nice cutts and some smaller rainbows. Here are the pics:

I really wish I could claim this cutt as my own. It was a 23 inch monster. Just bigger than my big cutt. I just had to take a picture with this beast cause it was so big. My wife's bro in law caught this one.

This was my fishing hole that caught two of the big cutts. Even better was my mountain dew cooler.

This was my first big cutt of the day. It was 20 inches, just barely to small to keep!

This was the last cutt of the day. We were just about done fishing when my pole started to move, I grabbed it and reeled in this nice 22 inch cutt!

Idaho Rainbows and even more snow! OCT 09

Me and Gilbert dreamed of hitting up the Henrys Fork of the Snake River, in Idaho. We had heard stories of big rainbows and awesome scenery. We finally had the chance to go up there over the Halloween weekend. We would much rather catch big rainbows than eat candy! As we were getting close to the town and river, we started to get into snow...a lot of snow! In fact, we had to push the jetta through the snow out of some parking lots! We decided to stop in at one the 4(yes 4) fly shops in the little town. and these were not just small fly shops, they were big! The guy in there thought we were crazy for going out in the weather to fish, but as it turned out, we had both stretches of the famous Henrys Fork all to ourselves. We did not even see another soul in two days. It was great. We had fun and even caught some pretty good fish.

Here is Box Canyon, just below the Dam below Island Park.
