If this fish came from the body of water that I'm assuming it did, let me offer up my congratulations to the pond's owner. Well done, thanks for everything you do.
I believe that this is proof (I've always suspected) that all other things being equal, the northern strain have every bit as much top-end range as the CNBG. No question in my mind.
2lbgill, the fights were incredible! I attributed this to the fact that these fish were virtually solid muscle. No loss of strength at all. I've always thought that bluegill fights were largely because of their height, and pugnacity as opposed to their fin size....but a great question just the same.
Leo.....we talk on the phone sometime. ;-)
Hmmmm. What do you make of that? To me that raises more questions.
Is it possible, that under identical growing conditions the northern strain will match the growth of the CNBG? I would love to see more data from this, and possibly other ponds that had both fish present, and involved in what I'm assuming to be an intensive management practice.
Will there be a time in the future that we may refer back to the "myth" of the superior CNBG growth?
Too early to tell I suppose, but very intriguing.
Half of the fish in the Arizona pond were coppernose, and the other half were standard northern strain. To our complete surprise, there were no differences whatsoever in the size distribution or top end. Both fish met and exceeded two pounds.
So which was bigger Bruce, Arizona or Richmond Mill??
I believe you said the Arizona fish was a northern strain, The Richmond Mill fish looked to be a Coppernose. Are there any drastic differences in the way both of those fish were able to achieve such sizes? I suspect there are many similarities.
