Great pic. There is a spot I fish here in northern ca, where you will routinely find mice in the bellies of brown trout. There is a cement water flume dumping into lake, I believe the mice fall in the flume & are washed into lake where they are grabbed by the waiting browns. Best lures there are big lures, like a 6-8" yozuri crystal minnow. Those who use the standard 'small' trout lures usually go home empty handed. They see my lures & say "theres no bass in this lake".

I have seen this before in bass that I have caught in Maryland. I had a nice 2lb smallmouth bass I caught in the upper Potomac and found the mouse in its stomach while cleaning it. Looked like some kind of black growth, until I spread it out and could see the feet and head. I've known people to catch and used bats for bait on the upper Potomac at night along the shore. They claim they get some really big bass on them.

I heard stories of huge largemouth bass taking mice, bullfrogs, snakes and small ducklings but never a trout taking a mouse. Photos don't lie. Great trout photo.

There is a lure called "The Rodent" made by Bettencourt Baits...The thing looks just like a mouse...soft fur and all!

Let's see. A r/c boat, a tank of large trout and a few mice on the stern of the boat. We can reshoot Jaws.

I once fished with a man who used live mice for largemouth bass bait.

He attached the hook with a rubber band so as to not harm or kill the mouse as he wanted it to swim about, if he did not get a strike by the time the mouse tired, he would put it back in the mouse cage and replace it with another.
