There is a small creek by my parents' house that I fished every day when I was
a kid. My brother and I would catch 99.9% chubs and shiners.
We very rarely caught a panfish. Never caught a trout in there....until today.
I decided to go for a drive after the rain stopped. I thought I might catch a chub or two in that creek. I made some casts with a tube jig without any bites until I threw it in a grassy area out of the current and something bit.
I thought it was likely a chub, but it didn't quite look like one.
I was praying that it would stay on so I could see what it was.
It turned out to be a fat little brook trout about 7" long.
