This was a very memorable trout. It fought like a giant and took off lots of drag. When I saw its head I was happy with the wide big head but it was about 5 inches shorter than I thought it was. It was obviously a cannibal and quit eating bugs long ago. It also did not like its photo taken.

The "heart" of Wisconsin's driftless area basically is situated directly over Crawford County.
The brown trout population is at an all time high these days and because of that the general sizes of the brown trout are going down.
It is the age old quality versus quantity argument. I would trade 20 small trout for one large trout so if you would like to see the size of trout increase, do other anglers a favor and harvest some of those small stunted trout to make room for bigger trout.
