Went out fishing at momence for a couple of hours to try out the new pole/reel combo and managed to hook on to this small guy. i released him before i left so he can get bigger. but i love my new toy. oh caught him on a mepps #3 brown
But just a tip to try in the future, if you plan on releasing a fish on a stringer, or even keeping one alive that you plan to take home to eat... With the sharp end of the stringer, pierce the fishes mouth just inside of the lower jaw. Their gills will be able to function normally, and your fish will stay fresher, longer.
