Splendid Silver

Redhorse, Silver
Size: 
28” 7#

One of my largest Silver Redhorse to date! Sight-fished this handsome dude from the tail of a large pool in a Great Lakes tributary. Felt like some sort of Alsaskan wilderness experience to wade half way across the river in chest-deep water to net this fish after an intense, line-peeling fight.

Dang, what a tank of a Silver! I thought my PB was pretty nice, but they just don't grow fish here like they do up there. The netting story sounds rough as heck too; glad you persisted and landed it!

WOW...  what a dorsal?

P.E.T.A. sucks!!!  Plants are living things, too -- they're just easier to catch!
