True, but the tragedy is that they're ruining the waterways over there as they do in one or two rivers they've got into in the Waikato in NZ. The authorities in the US are so concerned about the spread of these things that they were, last year, thinking of poisoning one or more complete river systems! That's how bad the situation is, eh!

It's a bugger to keep 'em in tuna.

Being a fisherman myself i didnt know that these fish were a curse in some water ways.We dont have anything like that in GB and dont want them i thought they were a native fish that were caught for sport. ( im talking about the film i posted not the steelhead )

Awesome fight! I'm addicted to fishing for these fish in our northwest waters. Steelhead are in the trout family, and like salmon, they are born and spend 2-3 years in the rivers they were spawned in. They then head out to the ocean for another 2-3 years and they return to the exact location they came from to spawn. Its pretty incredible really, the ones around here enter the rivers a 100 miles north or so from here and travel through several rivers to get to the creek where they came from. They are called steelhead because they fight like crazy, splashing all over and going airborne on several occasions when hooked. Genetically they are the same as trout, and noone is really sure why steelhead head out to the ocean and why trout don't. Sorry for the hijack, i'm pretty passionate about these fish Very Happy.

Has a rainbow trout look to it with that scarlet streak; big animal!What sort of tackle?

I use a 12 ft split cane fly rod with a floating line and tapered 2 lb leader; not quite enough gear for a monster like that but I've hauled 10lbers in on it....

(yet more hijack!)

Sorry...

Awesome John, i didn't know you were a fly fisherman. Very Happy I use a spinning reel and a 9 ft. medium action rod w/ 12 lb. ine and a 3 ft. 10 lb. leader. Usually bouncin corkies or salmon roe off the bottom to catch these. However i'm an avid fly fisherman for trout - thats what i usually fish for ( i just don't have the gear yet to fly fish for these hogs). 12 ft. rod? Man that would be fun!
