That’s one wild catch.
The 2-for-1, because the fish you caught already caught one.
Nature, man… it’s crazy out there. It’s always amazing to see the conditions these fish can push through to keep on surviving.
Brown trout are highly valued by anglers for their fighting ability and delicious flavor. They can grow to impressive sizes, with some reaching over 30 inches in length and weighing over 20 pounds. The average size of brown trout, however, is around 12-16 inches in length and 1-2 pounds in weight.
Brown trout are opportunistic feeders, meaning they will eat a wide variety of prey depending on what is available in their habitat. Their diet includes insects, crustaceans, small fish and even mice and other small mammals that fall into the water.
Brown trout are highly predatory and will actively hunt and attack their prey. They are known for their stealthy hunting behavior, where they will hide in the shadows or behind rocks and ambush their prey as it passes by. Brown trout are also skilled at feeding on insects that are floating on the water’s surface.
Brown trout can be quite aggressive towards other fish, especially when competing for food or territory. They will attack and chase other fish, and have been known to eat smaller fish of their own species.
This fisherman had a wild catch that shows just how much of a predator these awesome fish are.
The man caught a beautiful brown trout on a mouse lure. When he got the fish in he was met with a surprise. The trout had a foot-long rainbow trout hanging out of its mouth.
The fish had eaten a fish to large to swallow, had it stuck in its mouth and was still out there going after a mouse lure.
“This Brown Trout had eaten a 13” stocker rainbow while it was hooked to an angler or had recently escaped. The rainbow carcass still had a piece of 5x sticking out it’s mouth.
Oh, and the Brown destroyed a 7” mouse fly on the surface with that thing hanging out of its mouth.
It just goes to show the intense, predatory feeding behavior Browns can exhibit when they really get in the mood.”
All these fish know how to do is survive.
