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 12, 2013 -Derby Crappie- Nov 10th and 11th Derby. All were caught on blue and green tube jig. 14.5, 15 and a 15.5 whopper!
November 3, 2013 - Sedgwick County Park - Trout caught Monday morning by David Johnson, our fly shop manager..
October 28, 2013 - Cheney - October 28,2013 Monday morning. Nasty morning. Light fog. Breezy from the South. Millions of sea gulls. Again didn’t really think I’d do well. Tried one side of the lake nothing. Fought the wind to get to the other side of the lake. Lots of birds looking but not diving. Hovering low ready to bust loose at any moment. So, with no birds diving that I could see Went to down rigging which I don’t like to do this time of the year hoping something would bust loose. And it did. At first several really nice fat 18” Wipers. Not much shad showing up but some on a ledge. I kept at it and within an hour things really picked up. Bigger Wipers showed up some up to 8 lbs. all really fat. Then both down rigger went down hard. I was the only one in the boat so back to reeling one in first. But, it took forever. BIG fish on.
Ended up being at 15 lb. Catfish. Reeled the other pole in and another 15 lb. Catfish. Once again really fat fish. Continued to troll and within 10 mins. both poles down again HARD. Do to the wind I had to start the motor back up and drive to the fish. Another 15 lb. Catfish. Went to reel the other pole and nothing. Broke the line. Ended up with 15 Wipers caught along with the Catfish. Released all. Shad seem to be at 10’ depth and a lot of them in deep water. Not being chased by fish for me anyway. Mark.

July 17, 2013 - Wabunsee County Private Lake - Caught this potential record crappie at a private lake near Harveyville, Kansas on 7/17/2013.
Didn't weigh or measure, but by size of lure, estimate to be 15-17.5" depending on final measurement of the lure body length. Won't be verifiable as record crappie, but maybe???
Caught by Ryan Woodman of Topeka, Kansas.
June 3, 2013 - Wellington - Caught 24 pounder Friday night.
