While visiting family, Rick and his brother-in-law decided to take a day trip to a local reservoir. After catching and releasing a bunch of fish from his float tube, Rick stuck a fish he felt was bigger than the 17-19 inch rainbows he'd been pulling out...One quick flash from the water and he knew this one was a keeper...Check out the 30 inch, 12 pound hog Rick pulled out of Minersville Reservoir...This rainbow had an 18 inch girth and rates up there with the King Salmon Rick normally catches off the coast of California.

Kevin was fishing near Big Creek when he thought he had a snag...Much to his surprise, the snag came loose and he realized what he had caught was a water snake! After reeling it in, he figured out the snake actually was in the middle of lunch, this bullhead catfish was tightly clutched in the snake's mouth. The snake kept it's vice-grip on the fish until it was returned to the water...I guess it was not going to part with its meal.
