Male OR Female?

Recommended Posts

I like playing a little game when I fish in the early season. I try to guess the gender of trout. You can't keep the trout so there is nothing to prove your guesses.

Male trout are typically more colorful than female trout and the male trout's head is more pointed and elongated. Female have more rounded heads and the distance between the eye and the point of the upper jaw is shorter for females.

Male trout are more colorful because of the need to attract a mate. The females are more muted to hide themselves from predators because they carry the eggs.

Male trout develop a hooked lower jaw when they are mature. This hooked lower jaw is called a kype. The kype becomes even more profound during spawning times. The colors of the males are more flamboyant during spawning also.

There are four kinds of trout in our waterways here in southern Wisconsin. I will demonstrate each species and say whether it is a male or a female. The four types of trout are the extremely rare tiger trout, the native species the brook trout, the European transplant the brown trout and then there are rainbows in our waters that are released brood stock from the hatchery.

Those are my guesses. And I stress that they are "guesses".

    • Fake quote. I never said anything about 'Swans". I thought you were against fake quotes?    
    • The best light beer ever made!
    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.
