What are the odds of catching the same cutthroat 2 weeks apart, and 12 miles away? We were amazed when on our first outing 2 weeks ago I hooked an 18" cut with one of it's gill plates gone, and the gills exposed ( appeared healed over). It was very frisky, and when released it swam away with great vigor. Yesterday we fished a different area about 12 miles away from the 1st location,and caught another 18" cut with it's gill plate missing. We joked that it was the same fish, but when we got home and compared photos from both trips. The spot pattern was absolutely identical! It seems cutthroat have a pretty extensive range, and although they travel great distances they seem to frequent and school in certain locations rather than spread out. Case in point...As most of you know who fish SRC frequently there is always that one spot on your favorite beach that 99% of the time at least one, if not several fish will be hooked within a couple casts until they are on to your antics! Usually later in the summer they become more sporatic in location, rather than concentrated in the same holes. This has already been discussed on the forum, but thought I would add my own two cents here to add to the collective.
