That open water looks too inviting...I may have to get a jump on the season a little earlier this year. *looks at 24 hour weather forecast and sighs frown * Kudos for getting out there so early.

Here are a few from last night. The largest was 27" and about 7 1/2 lbs. Cut sucker and fathead minnows. All were released unharmed, and swam away very healthy! Any one know why there is such a color difference in the one?

that looks like a cross breed between a flat and a channel. The tail looks forked the head look too flat to be a channel, but the fins and body are channel. That middle pic you know that fish is going to be a big boy was he's fattened up in the summer. That head was way to big for his skinny little body.

It happens. Not really a big deal. Some channels are lighter gray, some are darker gray, some are greenish, some even have a purple tint to them, and the younger ones tend to have dark spots on them.

Nice fish!

I have found that the bigger the fish get the more gray in color they tend to be, so maybe that's just a younger fish. Who knows, just my thoughts.

is it normal for them to be that forked and pointed at that age. I thought that they were more rounded then that.
