Great brownie, especially for a first. I've noticed a cookie cutter sizing on the bows as well - not a whole bunch of juvies, maybe not so much the drought as all the high water we've had earlier in the the year? Probably a combo. Not sure, but the result either ways seems to be consistly nicer that average fish - got to love it. No fun on the finger hook up - I had a nice 1/0 hook through my thumb joint once when I was a kid. Funny though how catching fish can cures all ailments!
