11.5 is quite a fish, especially outside of Abrams. My best is a 10, out of the WPLPR, and it really gave me a tussle on a 2wt. If it had good coloration and fought well, it was probably wild. I hooked a few fish at Cosby, near the park boundary in November; they were larger than the typical fish there, and they were nothing but dead weight on the end of my line - no fight at all. In the same stretch, I caught a 7 inch bow that outfought all of them - actually stripped off some line...it was definitely a wild fish.
