      I don't think your scale was accurate. Normally, to weigh 7 pounds plus, the fish would have to be 23" or longer.

      That's one hell of a fish on Mendota, but, I've got to say, that's an even more impressive 'stache brother!

      I'm at student at UW Madison and it was for a university research project and permits were given to us for the use of the nets.

      Never heard of a Fyke net, did not think nets were legal.
