I've noticed this with Campostoma a little bit, often if we bring back big
fish they just never eat, but smaller year old fish do just fine. Had
some Cyprinella whipplei once that were like that too, the great big ones
just never ate, but medium sized ones were fine. Have other folks
observed this-in-all?
