Default Toccoa River Electroshocking Post

I don't know how to link to it, but the GA DNR Facebook page posted a picture of a 27", 11lb brown they shocked up in the Toccoa recently. It had a gnarly looking scar on its back. Monster of a fish.

Don't know the rest of their findings, but there is at least one trophy fish in there.

Perhaps Phil, perhaps.

There's much bigger browns than that in that river. Stud of a fish though.

The fisherman now is one who defies society, who rips lips, who drains the pool, who takes no prisoners, who is not to be confused with the sissy with the creel and bamboo rod. Granted, he releases what he catches, but in some cases, he strips the quarry of its perilous soul before tossing it back in the water. What was once a trout – cold, hard, spotted and beautiful – becomes “number seven.”
