Personal Best!


Brook trout are the name of the game at Kwagama. They are the only fish present in the lake and several others in the area. With a little help from camp owner Pat Henry, JD was able to get his best ever wild brookie. This fish measured at 18" before release and hit a brown stonebugger fished along a dropoff into 20 feet of water on an intermediate line.

Interesting coloration. Seems quite a bit different than the brookies found here in Maine.

Am I correct that you are wearing the original Sunshade Shirt in the photo?

Nice work. I would have to agree with my friend El P, most of my bookies have come from either the Adirondacks or ME. Perhaps its the larger size...

Also it was El P who also pointed me in your direction. I am heading off to Kona soon and was looking for tips and or someone local to hook up with. SS recalled that you did that a couple years back. I can be reached at my id @ gmail.com if you can. Thx.
