I'd rather release the 20-25 inchers to get to this stage. Hell of a trout Josh!! I don't see where genetics comes into play in this....it's more age than anything. This fish has escaped predators, nets, ect and just happened to live to maturity. Now if it was a 17-20 lb fish then I'd say genetics had something to do with it.
    This...........^^^^ This forum has more whining, holier than thou, do gooding, know it all crap. No wonder no one posts here anymore, particularly fish pictures. To the original poster, congrats. A fish you will never forget.

    Reminds me of my Troutzilla from last year that I caught....

    Them big ones eat better....they cook up good like a grouper....

    Those of yall that like to release them...by all means keep doing it....because every once in a while, some of us that like to eat them will catch one of 'em...

    Nice trout !!

    Thanks Guys! I will remember that fish for a long time. To Sea Snake It did taste like a grouper. Very thick great for a blackened sandwich

    Man nice trout! I noticed that in NF most of the big trout don't have worms like down south.
