 That fish looks great. Thank you for the pictures. I bet that lake is covered in ice now.

Brook trout like that are really interesting.  They can only feed during the ice-free months, which are generally June to November (just 1/2 year).  The rest of the time they starve under the ice cap.  Thus, they develop huge heads (the heads keep growing, the body doesn't).  Some of the old timers have heads much bigger than their bodies.  Really interesting.

Remote mountain lakes are a lot of fun.

thanks everyone! It was lots of fun, first pic was at a beaver pond, bottom three were at a high mountain lake, and I can guarantee that it is now covered in ice.

I don't know. I've seen lots of videos of guys catching them through the ice.
