Greg, thanks for the post. The term big is relative but for spawning females, big means something over twenty pounds. These fish were numerous just a few years ago and it took a fish of 30 pounds or more to get people's attention. While a day of six to ten pounders may seem like hot fishing, it doesn't satisfy the requirement that the system contain a good population of large (above 20 pounds) spawning females.

That's what I'm concerned about and that's what the future of the fishery is about.
