    Trout attack

    I have a large spring fed pond at my hunting block, we use it for swimming etc and approx 8 yrs ago put a rainbow trout in there.

    Its grown really well and is a decent size.

    The nephews were swimming in it today and one freaked out and exited the pond very quickly

    You can see the marks on his leg where mr trout held on.


    This is the first time i have ever heard of a Trout attack





    Anyone else heard of this happening ?

    Yeap looks like an eel bite to me. I had one of the bastards bite me a few years ago, was wading through water up to my armpits under some willows near the bank with my arms outstretched above the water and I felt myself step on it, bloody thing shot up the side of my body and latched onto my armpit, didn't really hurt all that much but the shock of the whole situation and then this slimy bastard thing latched onto me put me the closest I have ever been to cardiac arrest!

    Eel Dude,

    As said before but the give away is the upwards line in the centre of the bottom jaw V. Obviously quite hungry and thought your Nephew's legs looked like good tender fodder.

    Similar to Ryan I've had a few encounters of these float tube fishing in Arapuni late summer at sun down... had a couple of good rainbows in the keep net clipped to the float tube but wondered why we were going sideways even though I had a small claw anchor out. Look down and you don't forget those black faces the size of a large dogs head looking back at you...

    I have to say the fastest I've ever paddled back to sure I think I pretty much picked everything up and walked on water back to shore...
