I think we are talking different , Ideas.
This is how I define a slot fish ::::
the protected slot limit
prohibits the harvest of fish where the lengths, measured
from the snout
to the end of the tail, fall within the protected interval
In just an impromptu of the 80 pictures , I found about 55% to fall under the slot (18-28") with none I could identify over 40"
With speaking to the people who regularly fish up here , many caught fish in the under slot (18-28') range while few were in the slot (28-40" ) and none over.
This is very different then the 88% slot fish , 2% over (40) we had last season.
Something was terribly wrong this season. At least in my area.
