Re: Average size........
Good topic. I would agree with you. 8-10 inch average with anything 12 or over being 'rare'. I tend to catch bigger fish during the Spring thru mid-Summer. Last year, some of my fishing buddies and myself caught an unusual amount of 12-14" bows during this time. Don't know if I'm doing something wrong from mid-Summer on or if all those who are not an advocate of catch and release visit my favorite waters and take some supper home.
If you want to see some hogs some time, snorkel at the "Y". If I only knew what they would take!
May you fish more than you wish for.
