ongbok: SumoJeb: ongbok: I hope they threw it back after the photo so it can continue to breed

There are conflicting opinions whether ice fishing throwbacks have high mortality rates. Probably around a 20% mortality rate for released fish. Maybe closer to 16% if using a heated hut. Some sources say nearly 100% mortality in colder temps due to freezing of gills and eyes.

Any big fish suspended from the gut like that is likely dead.

Sad. It would be nice to see the big fish stay around to breed


especially a char like that. they are slow growers.

Goddamn that is a beautiful fish. When I saw the picture my chef brain went immediately to how to prepare it, then my fisherman brain said fark you, respect it as a beautiful catch.

I have some good trout recipes, but always looking for something better. Go on farkers
