Congrats to all who have caught him.

Makes you wonder if anyone else has landed him that's not on this site.

Littlelehigh,
I think the odds are very high that he's been caught by quite a few other fisherman and it wouldn't surprise me if other forum members have caught him as well. We know of at least three of us - if Jay gets him in 2011 then things will really get going.

Alby,
I'm sure you're right about fish being caught much more frequently than we realize, esp with smaller, less distinct fish. Of course, the big ones stand out. I discovered recently that a very big trout I caught a few years ago is depicted on the cover of a fishing book after having been caught by a different fella.

While Squaretail, then 3wt7X caught this particular brown before I did, last week 3wt caught a brookie in Big Spring Creek that I had caught last summer. And these were big fish that were photographed and could be proven to be the same fish. There's no doubt that smaller fish get caught repeatedly without us or our friends even noticing.

Very cool story and beautiful fish.

On a personal note, I have caught the same largemouth bass from a small private pond 15 times. One day while I was fishing there two other guys showed up and one of them caught her. I had already seen her that day and decided to leave her alone because I had just caught her the week before. Thankfully they released her. I saw her two weeks ago, glad to know she's still alive but I think I'll leave her alone this year. This fish has been exactly 21" for the last four years. I wonder how old that makes it?

I think it's cool to catch the same fish more than once. They really do become almost like old friends after a while.

Here's a toast to Jimmy Two Times and a great story. I hope he is feeding well. FI, I just took a peek at your website. Fantastic work.

Maybe fishermen can be reborn multiple times if they have the right Karma. Who knows, maybe God practices catch and release.

That is a great story. What did everyone use to catch that fish?

I think I may have even caught the same fish more than once in the same day. It was a steelhead on the SR. I had pitures of what I thought were two different fish I caught that day a few hours apart in the same pool, and from looking at the markings in the photos I took it appeared to be the same fish.

I caught the same steelhead at the JAM on each of my egg colors on my tandem combo within 10 minutes of eachother. He had a distinct lamprey mark on the side. MillerTime and GoldenFly were impressed with my landing of him the 2nd time as the fight literally took less than 10 seconds... little did they know he was tired out from the fight 10 minutes before hand lol.
