Thanks 4CP! Yes that fish is two years old. I stocked the Splake on 10.20.2018 at 5-8". I do agree with you, splake and tigers are next best thing. I really am determined to grow Brookies. I am still hoping some have survived and they just didn't catch any this trip. We will see. Here a pic of the splake when we stocked them. I got them straightened out on handling the fish!!!
