If you catch one, it's probably gonna be a dead one. You know how people like to smoke them things.
I'm surprised for you people. You fish the rivers and you don't know whats out there.
Geez.... I thought you guys were just kidding. There is a bounty on the things.... sheesh.
I'm going to jump on the squawfish boat. I kept thinking these looked like squawfish and I couldn't make them into a lake whitefish.
I think the adipose fin is pretty clear in those photos. That rules out Cyprinidae, which includes the northern pikeminnow, and other minnows. It is strong evidence that it is a salmonid. I'll agree with lake whitefish.
Here's a Joseph Tomelieri rendering:
Fish? What fish? Looks like the link is dead.
Ok.... I'm going to jump on the whitefish bandwagon.
Obviously someone photoshopped the adipose fins on the fish in the original photos. Good catch, I missed that one. It must be a whitefish.
Maybe they are really squawfish and have attached an adipose fin so they don't get turned in for the squawie bounty.
props to BDD for pointing out the adipose fin in an earlier post.
Obviously a native Cuttierainbrown!.....rookies.

HOLD THE PHONE!
It occurred to me that the first illustration of the NPM might be a fin-clipped hatchery job. It is! This is a non-hatchery, wild NPM:
Nice work. That made me laugh!
I didn't know there was a link. Only thing I posted was a couple of pictures.
Just my way of providing a small hint.
Geez, I don't know how I managed to change my font size to something smaller. Fixed.
No link, just click on the thumbnails to view photos.
