Tomas Nunez holds an absolutely beautiful golden dorado caught in the Rio de la Plata only ½ mile away from the Buenos Aires airport! Toms says these beauties are found in the Parana and Uruguay Rivers and are considered “river tigers” as we’re sure Bob Daly can attest. Great fish, Tomas!
Graham Hargrove sent us this fantastic picture showing his very nice 13 lb steelhead caught on his G. Loomis STR1082C and Shimano Curado 300E caught in the Skookumchuck River near his home in Tacoma, Washington. What a great catch!
We hadn’t heard much from Milan Dzikovic lately, but this latest picture is proof he hasn’t been working all the time. Milan says these three 46 – 55 lb Leerfish were 3 of 8 caught, the other 5 released. These are for the table and succumbed to Milan’s 7′ G. Loomis rod and Shimano Stella 10000SW casting a Williamson popper along with his hand-made custom lures.
Our pal Tyler Ziedrich didn’t let a little cold weather stop him from landing this very nice 5 lb largemouth at Patoka Lake in southern Indiana recently. No telling how potent his skills will be when it warms up!
John Hill sends us this picture of a marvelous Australian King Salmon. This is sure a “different” king salmon than we are used to and the first picture we’ve had submitted of this beautiful species. Way to go, John!
Here’s a perfect sized tuna caught by Milan Dzikovic in Montenegro recently. This beauty was caught on a Sportex rod with 30 lb Power Pro using a Shimano Stella 6000FA reel (Milan’s favorite). Notify the cook!
OK, it’s a baby picture. But we just had to include this as it’s Justin Poe’s first girl. Justin is Shimano’s rod product manager and responsible for all the great rods coming out of Shimano recently. We’re sure his two boys are as thrilled as Justin!
Please, folks, send us some of your pictures. We’re not after trophies, just pictures of fish you’re proud of. It’s easy. Just attached them to an email and send them to us at [email protected] and we’ll do our best to get them in the newsletter. Send them in to us!
