Yeah. It may be possible our fishin dogs are related. My girl is a rescue out of WA. Based on her one blue eye, the white blaze on her chest, and shape of her ears I think she has some Aussie in her. Probably the reason for her not handling the cold very well either. Our dogs are at least related via their masters' love for fishing if nothing more. HahaGreat video.
It is possible your lab is my labs sibling. ?
I don’t know if you released this fish but this is a great example of a picture of a fish you are going to release. There are some other not so great pics of wild fish in this thread. I know that in Oregon fish can be removed from the water for a pic but they should always be held over water and remain in the water with their head under the water prior to the pic being taken. This means in the pic the fish should have water dripping from it if it was lifted right before the photo. Boaters should be holding fish over the water over the side of the gunnel or row to shore. I love seeing pics and don’t mind seeing wild fish pics but a few on here are not good examples of proper C&R fish handling. The purpose of my post is not to put anyone down but rather help the fisherman and the fish.
Nice work. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a steelee hanging from a fishes mouth.
