While hunting for spots ran into some nice mature trout. Non native but was a nice surprise on top water. Sadly this was about 8 months ago.. moved overseas and working on getting a bite. It was a wake up call for me and the statement “the bass is always greener on the other side” stands true. A great memory nonetheless! Share some wild and unique catch’s on bass gear if you’ve got any!

Awesome catch! I am loving the use of the Steez/Slantbridge combo for trout. I can't count how many trout I caught on my Morethan/Javelin combo with a ned rig while out west. Sometimes specialty tackle is a little oversold. I crack up everytime I see a post asking " What rod for throwing 5/16 oz Chatterbait in 22ft of water with an 8mph SW wind?"..or something of the sort..haha Hope you get back in the fish soon enough.

@aquaftm well said and I agree 100%. Reminds me of certain forum members that would ask those exact types of questions, lol...

Get out there and try different things. Don't be afraid to experiment. Just have fun....

@rise It has been years since I've fished for Steelhead. I have very fond memories going fishing for them with my father. I thought they were just overgrown rainbow trout. Oh no...turns out they're a whole different beast.

Always learning...

@gaijin very much enjoy the reel, aside from the mag seal bearings. Not a fan. Everything else about it…great.

@pkn8 absolutely right. They are a blast to fish for/catch, and I love fishing in current, to-boot. 

Target casting, current breaks, eddies…great time, can’t wait to do it again this year.

Anadromous evolution created a whole new level of brute strength and tenacity especially on the fight...surviving saltwater environments with larger, stronger, faster competition and predators, undoubtedly pushed the evolutionary envelope of the steelhead variety.

Greg, have you tried removing all the MagSeal bearings and replacing with standard spec?

@aquaftm 

Nice bro, are those brookies or splake?  Doesn't seem to have a deep enough forked tail to be a splake.
