I Need A Bigger Net

I got this big trout yesterday on a Zara Spook. 30" on the nose! The first time I netted him and lifted up he flexed and fell back into the water,and my line got fouled around my 2nd rod guide.Luckily he stayed hooked and was tired and I led him back into the net. Reminded me of the trout we used to catch here back in the 70's. 2 photos and back in the water he went. Got another nice 24"er later along with 2 23" reds and a few snook to 24" for the day. The 24" snook I caught was one of those rare fish that have absolutely no fight in them at all,, but he swam away OK when released.

    Not sure John... It is the build to the full moon and the May moon is a big spawn....maybe that.
