Shouldn't be spawned out yet, that shouldn't happen for another month or so.
Fish has good color, just really skinny, as that size usually are really chunky.
Did y'all catch any others? If so how was their condition?
I saw some pics from some other buddies of mine and they looked to be pretty healthy.
BTW I am not knocking your fish, just concerned with the lack of weight it is carrying through the winter.
