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.
