What kinda fishes... really make your knees go kooky, and whimper and wobble...?









It's not a marz fish... is it?

Well, you didn't specify fresh water so I'll say that any blue or yellowfin tuna over 40 or 50 pounds will definitely have those affects.

Big Brook Trout (is there any other kinds of fish), like these 4-5 lbers from ZEC Pontiac, QE. (years ago):

(heh- must've logged in as you posted)

To be honest- those are some my friend Marty caught, but we got many like those on our old, annual trips up there. He had the camera and always promised me copies....but, through the years, I've only ended up with a few. We quit going up there, after they built new roads into Crown land and previously, hard to get to places- had nice gravel roads leading to them. Always, had to hit those lakes just after ice-out, which usually, meant the week, before Victoria day. It was a blast!

Often, even everyday, ordinary & generic brookies give me the "wobble"

A nice heavy Laker caught deep always gets the legs wobblin, especially in a 10' lightweight sportspal canoe.

Pretty hard to beat the approach of a "single" Bonefish on the flats..... your adrenaline is chugging and you know you only have one shot at this fish.......
If you are good/lucky enough to hook it up there is no better feeling in angling....Unless it's the 45th cast you've made to an emerger sippin' bruiser brown with 7x tippet, it's the 4th pattern you've tried and he finally takes it!!!!!
Or, there's the explosive bait busting pod of Albies and Blues eating bay anchovies, and you are targeting Albies- you strip, the line stops, you're hooked up, and..............the fish takes off at 38 mph- yeah baby, it's an albie!
In my book, every aspect of angling has a little bit o' wobble......
This is what gets us through the winter........

Thanks! I'll bet those new roads in the ZEC are pretty eroded by now (been over ten years) and it only takes a 5-6 hour drive from Watertown to get there. Cheap 3 day fishin license, cheap camping permits and fishin rights for the Zec.....lakes are shut off for the year, after a certain number are reported, after checking out @ the gate (generally 100 trout per lake)= I'll bet, those lakes (mostly, in the NE area) still have some BEAUTIES
