Trying out the video feature of this camera. I landed a good size brown trout in video mode and did not get a still. I only have two hands. I need to get a net soon.

Wet the hands. This helps to reduce the removal of the protective skin (slim) on the fish.

Camera malfunction!

Ummm well maybe I had it on the wrong setting… I deserved it for foul-hooking this one :( … Sorry little guy!
We had a nice storm roll through this afternoon and the mosquitos where not as bad tonight. But I know they are still there. Bill joined me this evening. We need to get out sooner when there is more light.

You can sort of see my fingers and the brook trout.

And get out I did!

Hit SBC this afternoon. Oh was it nice…. minus the mosquitos. They are very vicious this year with all the rain we had. Bug spray does not even help. Have to cover up head to toe. But aside from those pests I landed this nice 12 inch brown trout.
