9/06/17 trout update

5 posts in this topic

Caught and released 10 or 12 brook trout, and two tigers the other day to determine growth and health. No browns but they are in the pond. 

Brooks were 12 to almost 13 inches and the two tigers were in the 11 inch range. These fish are 8 months old. 

I have included pictures of a tiger trout (brown trout X brook trout) and a brook trout including the beautiful dorsal markings of one of the tigers.

Hi Cecil,

I have never heard of tiger trout before...Don't they look a good looking fish....

All the trout shown are in good nick...I'd be happy with their progress. I'd also be eying one or two off for dinner he, he he :0.

Cheers.

Thanks for the kind words. 

 

Tiger Trout: Cross between a female brown trout and a male brook trout. 

All trout sell for too much to eat! Minimum of $40.00 U.S. dollars each! Average is twice that by next fall.

Around $20.00 per pound. Rarely trout sold under 4 lbs. 

Another species the bluegill (Lepomis macrochiris) gets double or more than that because it weighs much less. Also less overhead than the trout.
