For the record, I did not bail!  I was domineered, trumped, overruled, etc. by a 58 year old female hell bent on home improvement projects and other BS that cuts deep into any free time I was hoping to have in retirement.  Would any of you like to borrow an industrious, productive gal, who can wire a building, build most anything, and plant stuff (but can't cook)? - no charge, no time limit but would prefer contract to last through the 1st week of May 2019 (end of spring gobbler season).  Thank you.


Turn in your nut sack, sir.  :laugh:

Doug, you should see Mrs. Mudwall's power tool and hardwood collection. It would put any man's collection of tools to shame. She has a room filled with different kinds of hardwood. That building they had built she hung the dry wall, put down floors, rain the electrical, and putting in hardwood floors.  Very impressed.

I don't think those trout have spawned yet.  Fins all looked healthy.  Males didn't look beat up.  Females looked plump.  Saw no redds nor any fish hanging out in tail outs.  I want some of that brookie's man juice in that stream for another generation.

After a haul like that, one may be moved to hang it up....the fish chasing that is.

This post sorta gives some credence to stories I've heard in my neck of the woods.  The most seemingly outlandish one is an account from an angler with a solid reputation who claimed he had an average size brookie on the line, and  15-16 inch brookie came out from behind a car hood and chomped the one hooked.  Dee Vo has caught some gooderns out of said stream.

More time shall be spent on that crick! I've got some info on a couple others in NC that hold some big brookies as well as VA.

While bringing in small brook trout and the occasional shiner in Maine, I have had large brook trout and even a loon chomp down on the fish.  The loon fought particularly hard and went right under the boat...

I've witnessed this one other time with a brookie that was probably bigger than that go after a brookie.  It'll get your heart raising witnessing a brook trout that big thriving in the southern Appalachians.
