I don't want to bring this up again, but the DWR may not accept it as the record. It looks like yo uhave fingers up through both gill plates. On the application itself, it talks about releasing the fish without it being stressed, abused, etc.
Again, I congratulate you on a fine fish. I'm not trying to rain on your parade.
Here is one of the tigers taken by one of the FF crew yesterday.
Here is the best I could do on the Tiger trout end:
Bet you wished you had gone south Tube Dud, he, he, he.
By the way, I could be wrong, but wasn't the Tiger Trout Record set at Palisades this year? Not sure on size but I thought it was around 9 lbs.
Some things are better left alone, Even though, some feel they know better.
