Sadly... the biggest fish I've landed to date... was a lousy, stinkin, no-fight carp. Had a crappie rig on the bottom with eggs on both hooks. Hooked him in that nasty puckered mouth and foul-hooked him in back to boot. Went to The Miracle Mile in Wyoming in 1999 with my dad after seeing pictures of the biggest trout I have ever laid eyes on from a previous trip of his. Water levels were so low I could see bottom. A dang cow pestered me for close to a mile before I had enough and whacked her in the nose with the tip of my fly-rod. Never saw one trout that whole trip.
