Default The lazy trout

I read that large trout which are more than 22 inches are generally lazy. They like to enjoy their largeness and don't like to spend too much energy. Is it an advantage or disadvantage for us?

It tends to be a disadvantage for us because that means we have to go to the fish and find it instead of the other way around.

It can be an advantage too because they are easier to find and does not dart too fast from us. We can present a delectable lure to catch them.

They may be easier to find and slower than other fish, but the reason they become so big is that they are smart enough to stay away from danger.

LOL, that's a good way to think about it. So I would conclude that it can be an advantage as well as disadvantage, depending on what your view. Anyway, the large trout maybe a perfect prey for experienced and patient anglers.

The lazier the fish, the harder we have to work for them. They aren't going to try to bite on our flies (they are lazy) and they probably aren't hungry either.
I like the hungry aggressive fish!

I've actually had the experience of seeing some large fish, dropping the fly almost right in front of them and they ignore it completely. Maybe they were lazy or maybe they just finished eating.
