Why We Love (and Hate) Hybrid Game Fish

Lake Henry is a famous blue ribbon catfish fisherman.It is the brutal land of the Aboriginal Yellowstone, as well as the Brook catfish and CUT mouth. At least in the US waters, they grow more common to the monster ratio than pure catfish.Nevertheless, in addition to the potential of the size, many fishingrs are closed by mixed fish because they are unnatural.At the same time, other fishermen will attract these mix and match, but to understand the cracks, you must look at the pros and cons of these fish.

Tiger catfish
Hybody catfish is famous for being more aggressive than pure strain catfish. Joe Cermele

Tiger catfish is a cross between brown catfish and stream catfish.In fact, these fish can occur naturally, although it is quite rare.The drifting area of Iowa and Wisconsin has the richness of natural tigers than any other region in the country. This is why the fishermen who seeks to complete a large number of flying fishes in the wild in the United States.A few years ago, in a small flight shop in Pennsylvania, I stared at a picture of a little tiger on the wall.This is one of the most gorgeous catfish in my history, its golden marble patterns and olive highlights.However, this photo has a history of 20 years, which is the only wild tiger encountered by the owner when running at the slate.These small natural tigers are very precious, but they should not be confused with other more common incubation fields that are disgusted by many catfish headhunters.

Tigers are easy to make.So simple, many states mix them with the rainbow and brown in the incubation field for spring and autumn socks.At the basic level, these fish just provide a more unique and unique opportunity with the mine, but it is more attractive than this.Although the wild tiger rarely exceeds 12 inches, the tiger at the incubation field is eating rapidly growing machines.This makes them more aggressive than other catfish, although those who do not like the incubation farm will tell you that they are just fools, and may not attack other catfish.I can prove this.

So far, I only captured a catfish in the wide sun in the northeast, which is a 22 -inch tiger.Although they knew that there were many wild brown in the same running, when the sun still rose, they were not foolish by a black foam skating.The reputation of hybrids that are more likely to capture is also common. Tiger musk (the cross between the pure musk and northern Parker) has never been my experience.

I encountered several pure musk in my life, but even if I spent a lot of time on lakes and rivers, there was never a tiger.I chose these positions because someone told me that the tiger there was easy.Someone told me that they were just eating anything you threw.Well, they don’t.Although I may not believe that tiger musk is easier, many stubborn people think that when they seize the tiger musk, they will not even feel excited.However, it is strange that I understand this attitude because I feel the same about mixed striped bass -they are cool, but they are not as cool as the pure salty strip.

Many arguments about the value of hybrid vehicles manufactured by the incubation field are just the position.If I live in the inland of the coastal stripper, I may like to mix the dancer.If the tiger musk is yours if only The local Muskie choice, you may go all out to chase them.However, it is interesting that most of Edaho’s debris is not the creation of the incubation field, and it constitutes a real problem about the ecosystem.

According to the design, the hybrid fish of the incubation field is sterile, so it cannot be reproduced.They are usually not as long as pure fish.It is this active marriage factors that prevent most hybrid vehicles from damaging its environment.For example, a few reserves tiger catfish will eventually fall into the minimum threat of wild catfish because they will not produce and they will compete with wild fish in a relatively short period of time.This is why the lake has no tiger musk at all in the end of the inventory plan.

Thomas recently claimed that the new records intended to storage and sterile to prevent the reduction of Henrys Lake, which prevents breeding.However, this is a different story, in the south of the snake river in Aidaho.

Based on this story Lewisston Tribulation NewspaperEdaho was published in 2019 and has been desperately trying to persuade the fishermen to kill more rainbow catfish in the river.They produced the number of rainbow that can be kept unlimited every day.These fish were implanted decades ago, but unlike those rare tiger catfish in the central and western regions, the rainbow is hybridizing with the local Cutthroat catfish at a fast speed.At present, the combination of non -local rainbow and more aggressive hybrid CUT worms is threatening the local pure rock Cutthroats population that is threatening to rivers.

Ironically, the western ordinary catfish fishermen are captured and released, while tiger catfish in East America and Central America frequently smoke.In order to make Aidaizhou really fall into trouble in the rainbow of the snake, Carter’s population will need to change a sharp attitude.At the same time, I let every tiger catfish go away, because although they are the work of the incubation field, when I insist on a person and like their thoughts nearby, I will still be excited.
