Holy shitballs! That's amazing. WTF @ the one from France?! That CAN NOT be real. Looks like it weighs 25 lbs!

Maybe I shouldn't have dumped my aquarium into the water on the beach at hurricane bay when I moved away in '99

Sorry! My Bad!

THOSE populations are thousands of times greater than any warm water fish that leave the keys to wander in near by shallows.

Ron, glad to see you are doing some reading. Tell me, where do the LCT spawn? What time of year? And what species are hanging around those areas during that time... eating all the new fry?

Damn! With this title I was hoping for a Godzilla thread.

So,.. if they are so good to eat why do you call them crappie?

Ron

Can we not mention Kirman or Poole. LOL I don't know whether introducing cutties is the real issue or not. That lake used to receive almost zero fishing pressure. Now it's packed every time I head up there. I've only been fishing it for the past 8 years so I can only imagine how good it was back in the day. I personally like the stocking of the cutties and hope that they will one day offer fish as large if not larger than the brooks. I'm sure you know this but keep in mind those brookies wouldn't be there either if someone hadn't stocked them. Do you know any of the history on when and who introduced them? Either way those lakes up in that area are great places to fish.

Now, that lake isnt nearly what it used to be, and those GIANT brookies are far and few between now.

Clearly due to management and not the fact that the human population of CA has doubled. We'd still have huge fishes is it weren't for that meddling guberment.

Maybe overfished by ignorant as#@&%es who didn;t catch and release? You know the ones, they like to eat wild stuff, but it is more likely to be thrown out after being wrapped in newspaper in their freezer for a year.

atchafalatio,,youve no idea of what we released there

LMAO. I see what you did there. Nice.

And no one uses newspaper anymore. Ziplocks are the new thing. What are you 80?

Thanks, hard to believe, but we caught about 30 to 40 that day from 3 to 12 pounds, all on flyrods. Every cast was another pig. Birds were diving on baitballs. The arms were worked. The only thing that stopped us was darkness. Those things eat 3 to 4 pound fish!

That's only because Obama controls the liberal media.
