Fish ID

Buddy of mine caught this and he thought it was a laker. I say splake as the tail doesn't seem to have much of a fork. Help us out...

Not a great photo but by the tail and markings I would len towards Splake. Either way that fish needs to strap on a feed bag.

Square tail=Laker.

Top fish is a Splake, note the tail, bottom fish is a Brookie.

O yea, typical green mountain laker.

My bad, but it's still a laker based on the pic.

I agree with Budha. Fish has all of the characteristics of a female Tiger Trout, to include markings and square tail. MYO

A lost "Ling Cod" very good eating if it had some meat on it.

Brad, that's a female tiger trout out of "your tiger lake". Yours was more yellow because it was a male. I caught 6 just like the picture a week ago after work. Here is a pic of the first 14" one I caught.
