Montana trout myth busted
« on: Dec 29, 2019, 08:46 AM »
I had Thurs-Friday off and nobody else did so I went alone locally. Forgot how nice it could be to sit in your shanty alone sometimes.
Would you believe I found not one but THREE trout in a cowboy hat? I hope this proves to everyone that there really are fish here and we're not just using pics of Minnesota and Colorado fish  ;D ;D
And I sure hope I'm not hot spotting the whole state of Montana as an ice fishing destination now!
Happy New Year ice buddies.





East of the Rockies and west of the rest, I do my best to do my dangedest and that's about all I guess.

SLAYERFISH is exactly right. The trout still look to be from Minnesota as the hat does not fit correctly.

Never seen a cowboy with a hat that big so it stands to reason those cowboy fish would follow suit.

I remain suspicious.... ???

In Texas the ladies say "make sure your hair is bigger than your butt". In Montana, you need to say "make sure your trout is bigger than your hat".
We're born, we live for a while, and then we die.  Sounds like a good reason to go ice fishing.
