Nice catch.

If they were trying to chase a fish away from their spawning ground, why would they bite the treble hook? And if they actually are attacking lures to defend a redd... is that fair catch? Honest question. I'm not sure if it is or not.

Good question, I think provoking a fish into attacking a bait would be fair but I'm new here. For what it's worth it's a pretty regular occurence where I fish.
