Bit of a surprise

Fishing one of Maine’s popular rivers today, I caught this.

It’s a lake trout (‘togue’ in Maine-speak), about 14-15".

At first I thought it was a salmon because of the silvery flash when I hooked it. It didn’t feel like a salmon, though. It didn’t run much, or jump at all. It just wanted to head for the bottom and stay there.

Later I caught another one about the same size.

The ‘popular’ river wasn’t very popular today. I was alone.
