I recently had a heckuva streak going in which I was only landing native fish. No formal count was tabulated, but I figure it was something in the neighborhood of 10-12 in a row. Hatchery fish were simply repulsed by my offerings until I broke the code a couple weeks ago. It felt good to dispatch a few and be the hero of the day by giving eggs to a buddy that "cured up real nice".
The first of two bright brats within 30 minutes.
Different day, a little bigger fish. Broodstock "misclip". Lower maxillary appear to be clipped as well. Taped out at 34".
