Default thalidomide trout

Bagged a couple of trout today..
Anyway One was missing both pectoral fin, the other was missing one, it was smooth, not like it had lost it swimming on a pen or whatever.

See pictures, ignore the cut, they are going to become kippers.

I know a guy that ate some fish that looked like that; he died.

It's from abrasions and getting nipped from other fish in hatchery runs.

I wouldn't worry about it. It's just a reflection of the younger trouts' desire to express their individuality. Should you catch a larger adolescent or an adult, you'll find that some of them are all tatted up. One was caught at Chatty recently and was inked as a pike. It's a brave new world out there.

It depends where you caught it. They clip the fins of some trout that are part of a study to determine growth rates.
