Man alive! What are they feeding the fish in this lake?
There must be some kind of nymph dispensers under there somewhere to allow these gluttonous fat boys to grow to such a tubby state with minimum effort.
I’m not sure how I should think of this fish… finely trained mega-athlete ready for a fight or grotesquely flabby plumper wheezing through its gills.
Either way, I guess the hookup was quite a shock… The lucky angler must have thought he had a stump or worse yet, a body!
I wonder if I would stick to my catch-and-release policy if I hooked that oaf.
Keep him and you’d be eating on that lug for quite some time.
