I don't think those trout have spawned yet.  Fins all looked healthy.  Males didn't look beat up.  Females looked plump.  Saw no redds nor any fish hanging out in tail outs.  I want some of that brookie's man juice in that stream for another generation.

After a haul like that, one may be moved to hang it up....the fish chasing that is.

This post sorta gives some credence to stories I've heard in my neck of the woods.  The most seemingly outlandish one is an account from an angler with a solid reputation who claimed he had an average size brookie on the line, and  15-16 inch brookie came out from behind a car hood and chomped the one hooked.  Dee Vo has caught some gooderns out of said stream.

While bringing in small brook trout and the occasional shiner in Maine, I have had large brook trout and even a loon chomp down on the fish.  The loon fought particularly hard and went right under the boat...

I've witnessed this one other time with a brookie that was probably bigger than that go after a brookie.  It'll get your heart raising witnessing a brook trout that big thriving in the southern Appalachians.
