Here is a nice Dolly I CnR'd. First, I landed him. Then I put him on a stick, through his gills. Huck Finn style. I didn't have a ruler but my frying pan at home is 14" so I brought him home to measure. Here he is enjoying time in the pan. Well, he was just shy of 20". So I lat him go in Lake Washington. I think he will like living there. Lots of perch!
Even after they been eatin chum carcass they smoke up good! Better yet though, you should choppem up into little pieces and usem as bait the next time you go fishin for the same species.....(on a serious note- I saw a guy fishing with bits of bull trout for bull trout on the upper skagit...not only illegal, but wasteful and unethical) -Thomas
