Here's a few mirrors from... our watershed. Just in case anybody else caught them. Some of them may even be duplicates... I never saw them all on one page before like this. If everyone posted up any mirrors they have good ID pictures of, that would be a great resource. I know Matt has a few from the tidal section that will have y'all salivating http://www.cookplex....O_DIR#/wink.gif

I left any out that are already in the recaptures thread. I was going to make it only bigger ones, but some of these go back as far as 2003, so they would be pretty fat by now.

In 2005 this was the biggest mirror I saw in person there, and I spent an unbelievable amount of time fishing the creek that year. If it's still around, it's huge.

This is the one I caught 5x. I called him stabby because the first time I caught him, he had a huge wound that looked like someone tried to shank him. The last time I saw him it was just a big scar on the back of his head.

This one might be in Bill's pond, I forget.

Canal:
Matt and I saw this fish but couldn't hook it one afternoon. I was so amped, I fished the same spot for 2 weeks straight until I landed it. Caught on the surface! I was so stoked, I wrote an article about it.

I'll throw these in here because they are the two biggest mirrors I've caught from the Schuylkill.

In looking at the old 2006 recap, I also came across this full scaler Jude caught upper river.

I wonder if that could be the skinny full scaler that Mike posted today?

I think I caught judes full scaler also. I caught a 7lb full scale in that exact location. That recaptured full scale I already posted had about a good 10 pounds on Judes fish. Plus that fish was caught 3 dams above where he caught his. I'll put up the other pic which I'm pretty sure will be the same fish Jude is holding.

I don't have a ton of mirror pics but I figured I would throw what I did have out there in case it helps with the research ;)

All were caught in the same general area at different times, of course.
