March 26, 2003 — TROPHY TROUT TIME
Trophy Trout Season officially kicked off last week! Early last week Greg Cortez of Bay City caught a 32 inch trout with a 16 inch girth on one day and followed up with a 30 inch trout that had a 15 inch girth the next day. Both fish were caught on Black and Chartreuse She Dogs in 2 to 3 foot of water. Greg proudly released both fish alive and well to fight another day. Not to be outdone by Greg, Zane Swope of Houston topped off last week with a 32 inch trout that had a 17 inch girth. The trout weighed 11.22 pounds on a certified scale. Zane’s trophy was caught on a bone and chartreuse Texas Trout Killer in 3 foot of water. Zane was guided by Get-A-Way-Adventures Lodge guide Ted Springer. After much thought and discussion Zane elected to mount the trophy of a lifetime. Hats off to Greg and Zane for their great fishing ability and their commitment to conservation. Photos of these fish can be viewed on the “Photos” page.
