Large high elevation lake. Wouldn't really call it a reservoir. Its man made, but I don't know its history. About 8,000 feet above sea level on a ski resort.

Thanks! I didn't have a scale with me, but I would guess it was at least 5 pounds, maybe more. It sure was fun to bring in. It was a real light hit on my jig. Set the hook just right!

Nice fish! My season is over due to surgeries, maybe get to ice fish. I've fished all my life and all over the usa but never heard of a tiger trout. Had to google it, good to know. Btw a man made lake is called a reservoir.

Oh hell! Compared to the 40lb+ West Michigan German Browns, That aint nothing but a fingerling or possibly bait! they sell those damn things down at the baitstore for a dollar a dozen! The Walleye guys use them even!

That poor little guy could comfortably reside in a sardine can!

Fishing advice: Pop a Khale hook through the adipose fin area, toss him back out, let him swim around a little....maybe you could catch yourself a 40lb flathead to really show us something! If not, reel him back in, roast him over a cig lighter or a matchstick......At least you got a shore lunch snack to complement the cheese and crackers, but a fathead minnow would just as easily suffice...

Thanks. I enjoy ice fishing too. My body of water vocabulary needs work.

Haha. YES. It IS all about location! This catch was at least akin to sniffing out a deep Merc in a pounded, public park.

That is a dandy Tiger trout . A tiger trout of any size is on my bucket list. I know of a couple places where they are , but i haven't had the chance to get to them yet.

Thanks! I haven't caught many. They are very distinctive though. Deep green backs with that awesome spotting. It's hard to tell from the pics, but that one had a really orange belly.
