Brook Trout Fishing Adirondack Mountain Kettle Ponds

You have to carry your gear and boats, paddle across the larger lakes, then do more carries and more paddling, then repeat that again before you reach these kettle ponds. We caught ~16 brook trout of varying sizes (9, 12, 14, and 18") over 2 days and we let 1/2 of them go. Larry caught the largest... an 18" bruiser and his personal best. I caught the most and my personal best brook trout of 14". This trip secured a prominent place in our memory banks...

Outstanding! I am still sore from lugging my 60 pound float tube & overnight bag 10 miles on Friday but watching your video has inspired me to get out tomorrow as well. Congratulations on some nice fish!

VT,

I have a Trinity. The bag with the float tube and fishing gear alone weighs 30 pounds. The camping gear adds another 22 pounds so not quite 60 pounds but close enough.

Congratulations on a nice trip and PB brookies and thanks for sharing the video. Persistence has paid off for you after a couple of tough outings so this one must be even sweeter.

Cooler and ice/those freezer things. At least that's what I've used in the past to haul out trout.

Congrats on a successful trip Bioguide. Some nice fish there. Haven't watched the video yet. But have enjoyed a few of your other ones. Will get to this one some time soon.

Similar to Troutchaser...they stay on a stringer while we are fishing and then they go into a soft sided insulated bag for transport and into a cooler of ice once we are back at the car.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Just finished watching your video. Have to say I always like watching others do these types of trips. Holds me over until I can get back out.

Also just a little more on packing out trout. One thing I like to do is fillet the trout instead of just gutting them. Helps reduce the amount of fish weight you have to carry. Then just put them in a zip lock in the soft side cooler.

Again great video and congrats. Keep 'em coming.
