No really this is a true story.
Duck hunting along a nearly frozen river. Shoot a duck that happens to fall into an unfrozen eddy and he is lazily swirling, trying to figure out how to get it out.
Not a safe place for the dog to go.
In a tool box an old rusty rappala and a length of old climbing rope. Wire the rapalla to the rope and toss it over the duck to bring it in.
While the duck is getting pulled in the rope gets a hard hit. Keep pulling and along with the duck out comes an 18 inch brown. I wish I had a video.

I more than believe you. I breed German Brown Trout, average 350 to 450 mm. They will eat every baby duck they can. If a small wood duck lands in there pool. it isn't long before the trout are eyeing it up and trying to figure out how to eat it. I could see what you say happening in Brown Trout water easy.

Regards, jay
