Neat fish David.

I am wondering that it is a full brook trout.  

I was thinking splake at first which is a Lake Trout/Brook trout cross which did not make since, but Brent thought it could be a Tiger Trout which is a Brown Trout/Brook Trout cross.  That does sound more reasonable.  

Take a look at some at some of these:https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHWA_enUS683US683&ei=4ao0XPaNL8qJ5wKNqKOYBQ&q=tiger+trout+images&oq=tiger+trout+im&gs_l=psy-ab.1.0.0.3758.4417..6752...0.0..0.223.629.2-3......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i67.8iPPa3MODEY

4-10 is the state record for brook trout - I would have thought a 21" fish is close to that if not exceeding record.

I would think that Dan Rankin would be interested in that fish, too.

The trout from Jocassee has the worm pattern below the lateral line which is abnormal for a brookie, and a lack of spots that you would normally see on a brook trout.

I posted your photo on a MI board that I follow and all the responses there have said tiger trout too.

I am going to send your pics to my cousin to get his opinion.  He is a fish biologist.  At one time he was at the partner/sister hatchery to Walhalla in Tennessee that help Walhalla with their fish, especially triploid fish.  Curious if he thinks that it is possible that the hatchery could have produced a tiger trout unintentionally in their usually process.   

I am guessing he will say the only way to know for sure about that fish is DNA.

Even

I will call DNR today to see if they want the fish for a DNA sample.
