    Gator Trout!!!

    I caught this Big Slob today on a Topwater in the St augustine intercostal from shore. I limited out after also catching and releasing another big 24incher. The rest were all in the 18-19 in range. After all year of catching 14 1/4 in fish im pumped to finally stack em up! She was a 29 1/4 in, 9lb ,16in gerth Pig! I think its a fish of a lifetime but we will just have to wait and see! I went back the next day and caught a 24 1/4 in the same hole. Guess this spot i will keep to myself

    Nice trout.
    They usually get worms in the flesh when they get that big, so might not be such good eating.

    The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad.

    No worms at all! I find more worms in the smaller trout than the big ones.

    Well I've caught a few trout before and that would certainly be the fish of my lifetime so far. Incredible man! Guess I can't blame my bad luck this weekend on the full moon anymore since you're out there bringing the hammer down. Now I see why they call em' gators. 29+".... unreal dude, congrats.

    PS - I've seen that white van parked on the side of the road before so I know exactly where your spot is.
