South Park Stillwater - April 7, 2012

I fished a famous South Park stillwater on Saturday with a bunch of buddies. It was epic. I'm not going to say the name because I'm sure you all know which one - but luckily you don't know this spot.

We all caught tons of fish, all fish were healthy and it is going to be a great year for this lake. We have a bit of a tradition amongst my buddies - it is the Old Chub Chug - my buddy Scott had the honors after landing a fish on his first cast.

I managed double digit fish for the day all about one or two at 18+ inches. Including this 23.5 inch rainbow that looked like a steelhead - it was my first fish of the day.

That was a nice surprise.

I saw a couple videos on the internet where a guy had put his Go Pro camera on his net and took videos of landing and releasing fish - it was an awesome idea and I hooked mine up to do the same. Lots of videos and a bunch of still shots - great tool to have during a fishing outing. Check out these pics I took from the videos:

We fished all day, wind was up a little bit, but calmed down at the end of the day. Home by 7pm - it was an awesome day - thanks guys for hitting it with me!
