Half laker/half??

Forum buddy of mine caught this today out of the Hiwasssee River. White fin-tips say "char", but flat tail and mouth do not say Laker...

Brookie? No colors, this time of year?

Thanks Jon! So he caught a 1 in 1000 brookie, eh?

When I first saw it, I got excited... Thought he had caught the first Mack ever taken out of the Hiwassee... But the jaw and tail betrayed this fish as an impostor.

But an "albino" (for lack of a better term) brookie is pretty cool as well.

Appreciate the ID.

hobie. There is at least SOME orange/red on that fish though... The one Rusty caught was completely bereft of color, other than the gray and white. No orange in the fins or tail, no ruddiness in the underbelly.

You're right though... Lots of differing colorations on brooks.

Here's my FAVORITE colors. :)




They're pretty from up there in that reservoir. ;)
