You guys are making it like now I need to produce a beast on a rodent... That is almost as bad as 30+-incher.

I have backed off the trout fishing (mostly due to heat) and was keying on bass to take a break...since the water levels finally came down to wadible levels.

I hope to return to scouting mode...and when I have concrete sightings...the mice will start to fly.

Then I plan to catch the fish that would eat that little 20"er!

Update: 7/13/14

With the Sun going behind clouds early afternoon, I decided to see how the big'ens behaved. It did not stay cloudy…sun was in and out…I was getting cooked in the humid 90 degree weather.

I saw two large fish near a large woodpile and decided to see if I could get a reaction. It would be impossible to land a fish from the many submerged logs if the fish choose to run into them (even with a 20lb mono leader).

I had the shown newly tied streamer on and worked it to the back of the deep hole where the visible fish where. Spooked another large fish from the deepest part of the hole in the process. The targeted fish did not budge.

Decided to try a weedless mouse (store bought) and managed to eventually get the lead fish to move towards the mouse then do a 180 showing me its 2 foot plus length and sparse dot pattern.

I saw several other nice large fish. One male colored hook jaw that was around 20".

The dark fish was in the same spot I saw it before. I assume that the fish could be old and could be at the end of its life 18-20". Interestingly there was a normally colored same size fish immediately to the right of this fish.

I am wondering if the browns start to pair up for spawning in the fall at this time of the summer…

I did see a number of 1.5" fish that gave me the impression of being browns.

I am working out the landscape and casting angles for fishing in the dark…soon they will be on the hook!

Some cool trout hunting going on here. My money says you'll nail one of those guys after dark pretty soon. No pressure.

It was perfect mousing weather to experiment tonight after the flash flooding. The Letort went up around a foot and was the perfect setting for a Sci-Fi Super Anaconda Movie. Tall grass/weed and water everywhere…every log looked like a giant snake!

One 15"er came to play with a streamer. Missed another. The Letort was blown out and muddy.

I love when those are the conditions of that stream. Makes it more like a normal stream.

albud1962,

The "Night_Stalker" appears after dark when least expected…!

The day time embodiment of said creature may have been viewable at the "Run" briefly…talking and eating red raspberries. No fishing there unless it is the month of February.

Then off to hunt creatures of the night…something to do with the Super Moon.

Look for the Black FJ Cruiser.
