    From the photo it looks like the lower jaw has a 'kype' so it would then be a male. Better give it an IAAF gender test to be sure.. - also check out it's stomach isn't full of split shot...

    Info from a pc game, trophy rivers, which nowadays serve as a little database for me!

    where do you get the information about river browns only living 9 years? whats that info from? i think it is quite inaccurate... just for information's sake. I bet that brown is 20 years old or older.

    "Info from a pc game, trophy rivers, which nowadays serve as a little database for me!" I gave my reference, im pretty sure they wont give it if it werent true. But please prove me wrong via a credible source. Maybe someone has mr skeleton's book on freshwater fishes?

    that number actually seems to be pretty close, but im sure this particular fish is an exception. according to this university article, from the area where the fish was caught, we are talking about something like 13 years...

    http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7...5650--,00.html

    it is a michigan fish and this is michigan governmental info, so maybe about as accurate as possible. main point is that 9 years for a brown seemed young, but i guess they are only slightly longer living fish than the other salmonids.
