This Brown was taken by my dad a few years before he passed away. This was a smidge over 5 pounds. Tiny compared to some of the Browns coming out of Lake Michigan. Pretty huge considering this came from a stream in Wisconsin you can step across in many spots. Dad was 6 feet tall to give you some idea of the size of this guy.

The fish was caught in Castle Rock, Wi (about 45 miles West of Black Earth) and the picture is from the mid to late 1990's
