    why yes we did...2hrs in dingy,boated 9 fish...kept biggest 4...now comes the freaky bit...we left lake at 7 got home n had cuppa before I went out to clean fish...which had been iki spiked at lake,then sat in dry bottom of boat for 2.5 hours....when washing them one fishs gill plates started moving again.....wife came out and confirmed I hadnt lost the plot...gutted it and washed out properly...cleaned others and when hooked through gills to carry into fridge it still had movement going on in jaw/gill area........too mecky bros..too mecky indeed...... enough to freak a fella out...Ive seen eels do it but brown trout arent supposed to stay moving for that long out of water.

    Haven't done alot of fishing this year as chasing Sika is too much fun. Finally got out for a fish back down south on the Oreti and landed two nice browns, one just over 4lb and one just under 6lbs which is my biggest to date.
