Nice winter lake trout. This is from the Canadian side of Mountain Lake which explains the snowmobile tracks in the picture.

"thats a big trout for Mountain Lake"
I know Mountain can be a dink fest but there are some trout in there much bigger than that one. That fish was real skinny but I love the colors on it.

flambeau river, wisconsin, not the bwca. technically not winter either. (early march). winds gusting to sixty miles an hour that week, blizzard from hell, and we were running rapids in the illustrious wenonah whitewater II. hypothermia was a constant threat.
