I caught this fish in the fall of '07



I caught this fish today. Look at the pelvic fins. The end of the port side fin is clipped off on both fish.



Today's fish appeears to be longer(hard to tell), but it was a pound less in weight.

Also, both fish were caught out of the same cove, in the same vicinity, except the area where I caught the the first fish is way out of the water. Both fish were caught in about 2'- 3' of water.

I used to clip the dorsal on all fish I caught that were over 5lb. I got a call from one of the MBC members that weighed in one of them. That is what also got me making Fizz Kits. I caught a 6 on a road bed over 50ft deep, it needed fizzing for release. Caught it again four days later, same area only on a spoon instead of a jig, it had the fin clipped. Also seen one of those bass in a feature written in a column in the old Sagi paper. I don't clip them anymore. Then again I don't catch as many biguns as I used to.

Out of curiousity...why did you clip the fins?

Was on Plez. usually three times a week. I wanted to see how many times me or a friend would catch the same fish in the same area. I caught a one eyed bass three different times in Coles Bay one summer. It stayed in or near a cut on the east side by the cliffs. It was caught each time on a grn/pmkn lizzard c-rigged.

LOL. If Sumo made a bubblegum frog, I'd probably use one.:riaa: The backs of all the coves are choked, plus I almost backed off the end of the ramp yesterday.

In two years, that fish would be a bit bigger. They could be kin, from the same gene pool, sisters a whole year apart. Very nice. You will need a bigger golden rule next year. Did you get a weight?
Has anybody tatooed fish or know of someone doing that? Thought I heard about that one time on here.
