What percentage of the kings you caught were plants (no adipose fin) versus natural reproduction?

I donít have a percentage but can tell you that it is very rare for me to catch a planted chinook.  This has been the case for many years.  Iíd guess over 90% of the kings I catch are natural. I only remember one this year that wasnít. I went back and looked at my photos and didnít see any without the adipose.

I have put 20 kings on my boat this year so far. 5 have been stocked fish.

Skewed question because of the tiny plant.
With me it's around 40%.

Mine was around 60% natural 40% stocked
By far my best season yet on kings and average fish per trip jumped from 1.5 fish per trip to 3.25 rounding here fish per trip and only one lake trout on the first trip of the year rest were silvers

3 coho
10 kings
1 lake trout
6 steelhead

6 real trips plus 2 went out and just came back in because we didnít want to deal with 3 ft waves and never dropped a line.
