Yes | No | Report from tourneyking734 wrote 2 weeks 6 days ago my resolution is to catch a record-weight fallfish or brook trout, whether line class or not. also I would like to catch a muskie, making it so that i have caught all warmwater species in maine
Q: what is the weirdest fish you caught and where did you catch it (our weird fish in maine is the fallfish)?
Still, there were lots of fallfish hitting the surface, as well as what appeared to be some good-sized trout.
One thing I noticed was that while the browns were quite active, I really hadn't seen much surface activity outside of the fallfish grabbing their breakfast on the tricos downstream.
I saw tricos in the air, pushed up against the far bank by a strong wind and fallfish were feeding on them.
The bass was a nice surprise, but the fallfish was a real treat.
Before leaving, I hooked into and fought a robust, 13-inch fallfish and a young smallmouth bass.
I had a few small fallfish nip at it before missing a good strike.
