My name is Travis Parrish and my buddy from Fort Myers and I went out to the Indian River not too long ago to go fishing. We were searching for some nice fat reds for a tournament we were entering that weekend. I found a nice clean bank with a good drop off and a variety of bait in the area. The water was nice and cool, so I knew some big trout would be around. As I was polling, looking for some reds, I saw what appeared to be a snook cruising the bank. The shoulders were broad and he swam like he owned the place. I told my buddy Matt to cast on him as he was about 15 yards away and without hesitation this beast crashed his jerk bait. Within five minutes we had him in the net and onto my boat. It was a shock to see his big ole yellow mouth; it was by far the biggest trout I had personally ever seen caught. After weighing it on my boga grip and taking it to sunrise marina, it turned out to be just over 12lbs and 33 1/4 inches. After we went home and did a little research, the current length IGFA record is 79cm which is just over 31 inches. We had just landed the world's longest trout.
