I was really surprised to see a Steelhaed in this good of condition after having been in the pond since November. Caught on a fly. I was going to keep it but changed my mind.
looks like that pond is heavily pressured lol
yeah it is quite puzzling.. i havent heard of them bein stocked for a while.. but man were they agressive fish.. when they stocked them at jcp you always caught the brookies and not rainbows.. they were a hell of a fight too.Only if the hatchery truck spits some nice fish into the pond, not like they spawn or holdover for 5 years lol, I'm pretty sure you had that figured out though lol, if not, then ...... :lol:
I've heard of those Brooder Brookies, they put some in St. Louis last year as well, must have been some kind of experiment/test because I (being so young) haven't heard of them being stocked any other year.
Will that fish live after being released after being on the stringer? I am just asking cause I dont know?
Ya I did'nt think so
