There is some sick obsession people have with trout, they treat them like a delicacy and to be honest they are fair at best when compared to other fish species.
I am quite certain that there are more than you would think in this area that are guilty of something similar to this. I have seen quite a few on the Clinch who kept more than their limit, including many in the slot. Called TWRA on a couple of them, as the were drifting downstream in kayaks, hoping they would catch them at Hwy 61. Also, I know a few guys who easily have five or six limits of trout in their freezer at any given time. In their mind as long as they only keep 7 fish per day they should be allowed to have as many as they want in their freezer.
I am sure that there are many others out there with that kind of mindset.
