So, one of the most significant scientific research experiments of the 21st century was conducted yesterday, about a 1/2 mile off-shore of Balsam. All our keeper fish were measured as soon as they were pulled out of the hole (see...., told you there would be fish!). Then thrown outside, left to freeze up throughout the day, and re-measured.
Our conclusion? No measurable differences in lengths. As a matter of fact, there may have been a very slight decrease in their size.
