Frank is back home

This is Frank the Tank. The 34# 10oz Missouri state record brown trout. Caught in late February, and released at the MDC boat ramp below Table Rock dam. His distinctive "hump" back leaves no doubt. He has made his way down lake, and behind the fish cleaning stations at Lilleys Landing.
He didn't get that big by searching for his next meal when he can just hover, and gorge on fish heads, and remains.

I feel sorry for him. It's gotta be hard swimming when you're such a beef cake!

I think he does a lot of hovering. But he does take an occasional stroll away from the safety of Phils dock.
The theory why he was all the way up near Fall Creek when he was caught during the Vince Elfrink Memorial Tournament was that fishing has been quite slow over the Winter, and not a lot of fish cleaning going on providing him with easy meals.

That's kind of what I figured as well. Plus with all of the current, the food supply was being washed down stream as soon as it was thrown in versus just laying on bottom for the scavengers to come clean up.
