Re: Big T report
If you possess the self control, it is kind of nice to avoid the big browns on their redds during the spawn. Go after the egg thieves behind them!
Browns will attack most anything near their redd, so it is kind of hard to resist the temptation. The stress ends up killing quite a few big browns every year.
Just go for the egg stealers and leave the spawners alone (or wait until they are in a feeding lane and off the redd).
