nice catch, congrats!
Maramec had some decent fish in it this year. I never did have a problem finding decent quality fish to bring back home. I heard Montauk and Bennett fish were running small though.I've been neglecting the trout parks. Now that the kids are really getting into fishing, I need to take them down there.
The nose was really beat up and the lack of fight in it are what makes me think it was a stocker. I've caught some lunkers in the winter and during high water that I believe were river fish and they fought like crazy! It was definitely the prettiest lunker I've caught down there.I don't know,ive never saw a stocker with that much color.....Imho it swam in from river......tails in really good shape too.
Really nice one.:cheers:
