Nice fish. It's interesting that the DNR released a statement yesterday encouraging anglers to release big gills, because they are the males defending the nests. Maybe that's common knowledge, but I always assumed the big ones were the females.

 we think this one is a male from the color on top pic and size of the ear flap. But not 100% sure. middle pic colors look more like female but cameras can be tricky on colors. great plan to release the bigger fish.  pass on those genetics. Caught tonnage this week and didn't put the knife to any. :)

All went back... big ones, really big ones and huge ones... all were released😉 funny thing was we really didnt catch many small ones. I think i got maybe a dozen fish under 8 inches in 9hrs of fishing

Sweet. Could you imagine getting into a school of big ones like that while ice fishing with ultralight gear?  Maybe you've actually done it - but I just have to dream.

No... whats really cool is the fact we were on true trophy size fish... and never kept one... not even the big one you got. I know plenty of folks who would have mounted that one, and you tossed it back without a moments hesitation or regret after. Good job, dude!
