    Luke, you do recognize that the deformity you see is actually a beheaded trout, right? ;)

    Actually, they had 12-14 fish lined up on the bank, slit from the head to tail. The story just isn't believable - who catches 14 fish at a lake, puts them in a white plastic grocery bag, then drives 20 miles away to a secluded section of a different river to clean them? I didn't see any rods, but they were probably in the back of their truck.

    One theory: They left Matoon because they were 2-4 fish over the limit and didn't want to get busted for that.

    Reading this makes me want to do a Cedar River poaching rant but I must.....restrain myself.....don't want it interfering with my Friday night sense of well being.

    You did good, Mr. Young; I'd have probably done something similar. Maybe one of these days I'll have to get myself a fancy phone so i can take videos.
