    Default grilse,sea trout or hybrid

    my daughters boyfried got this last week,this is his 2nd season.thinking it was a sea trout he kept it, and brought it home to show me, and my 1st thoughts was a sea trout .then closer inspection maybe a grilse..another thread about fish getting smaller this was just over 1 1/2lb and the tail and a slight wrist swayed me.or possibly a hybrid ???

    Looks more sea trout to me. The shape of the body just doesn't look like it's travelled as far as a grilse. The only grilsey thing about it for me is the shape of the tail, but I would bet that it looks flatter when it is fanned out.

    Unhappy

    It could be a hybrid, there has been that many escape's from fish farms over the last number of years.

    I would say sea trout due to maxilary bone, spots below lateral line and small scales, small sea trout tend to have forked tails its only generally 2lb+ fish that have straight or convex tails at least thats been the story with me.atb

    ive had plenty of sea trout this size and the tails dont look like this ,,how about a salmon/sea trout hybrid. could this not be a possibility ??

    Totally agree Ryanol. Its a 100% seatrout to me for the above reasons.
