And the original strain is growing bigger than the Summit strain, all of the 20+ pound fish caught this year so far, of which I'm aware, have been Pilot Peak fish.

It's my understanding that all the Pilot Peak fish had their adipose fin clipped before they were put in the Lake.

That is correct. The 19.4 fish that was caught last Tuesday had the fin adipose fin clipped. It looked like a nub. The Adipose fin would normally be on the small of the back.

I'm pretty sure they are tagged also. THe yellow tag fish are the first ones. Green tags are from 2010.

The 19.4 2007 that was caught next to my ladder was not tagged. What a monster.
