---Quote (Originally by troutheaven)---I do not wish to cause any offence, but perhaps you could explain to us your definition of a slob trout.---End Quote---"slob" or "bull" trout to give them another name, are generally trout which have not got past the estuary, that is, they migrate to the estuary just like other trout, but do not, either due to seasonal timing, or other factors venture out to sea, they return up the river to spawn without having left the estuary. The same fish, if it had made it to sea would have returned as a full blown "sea trout" and not a slob or bull trout, colour would then be the only noticeable difference!regardsbert
