GOOD STUFF!! My brother contacted the district fisheries biologist,with the dnr, for that area, and the gentleman said he was interested in studying this further. Didn't think it very probable that they were coming from Heidecke, saying that fish will generally get into the lake, FROM the river. At first he thought I might've released a near record white bass, but I texted a pic that proved it was a hybrid.
Rambler, your comment made me laugh! There was a whiff of truth to it,however, considering some of what I saw washed up on shore! Kind of made me regret the leak in my wading boots.
