I don't weigh my fish. extra gear and extra time out of the water. Those pics were of Steve (Steelhead) and Paul (meyersp).. We generally catch and release until a fish got injured, and then that becomes dinner that served 3-4. I'll take a guess between 2.5-4lbs.

Since we have no post today, I'll post this from Markskor's 4x "fishless" lake of Meyersp off the beach at Evelyn 2008:

Nice shot, Russ.

Here's a picture from a slightly different stage in the fishing process. Dinner for four:

It was a nice bed of coals during the cook, bones removed and served with Ritz crackers.. Then cocktails around the stoked fire:
