GREAT SHOT OF A PRETTY GILL JOHN..
Dragonfly ,yes a great Trout and Gill food.
Ahh, it's a beautiful photo. Gills through the ice I catch often have a paler pink grapefruit color,
Ahh, it's a beautiful photo
… what was notable about this fish was it looked like it was taken off the spawning bed in early summer!
John I use Picasa 3 on the computer and PhotoShop Express on the Android for touching up photos… the past couple years I’ve been using my LG phone as my main camera… the two programs or apps listed above to retouch photos before publish… both have automatic “touch up” and vibrancy buttons.
Earl and I tag a few fish like this all year long with great colors…. My experience raising tropical fish has shown me many fish will excite with vibrant colors during the spawning act, aggression over territory and periods of fervent fishing activity. Religiously fishing the premium spots and most favorable solunar periods increases the odds of tagging optimally colored fish. Just a theory..
The day we ice fished this lake we caught a few spectacularly colored fish including p.seeds. I clipped a few tails of these specimens while they layed on the ice for a period thinking I will check a few stomachs for food… which I usually do when I clean fish. Most of the time the b.gills end up dark brown banded after just laying on the ice for just a short period. Chameleon-like in that respect.
Many fish had dragonfly and small bugs in the gut during at cleaning.
Is this color enhanced ?
