That would be a chicken shite way to earn a record. She would be on my wall.
That area over there in Florida might just top the Texas coast for slabs(gator trout)
Too bad we have gillnets over here in bama . It makes it more challenging to catch big ones like other states.
Btw...31" trout , full of roe, is about 9-11 pounds...not quite a record fish. Longest ive got on wall is 30.5". She was caught july in Gulfshores with no roe in her and only weighed 7.25 pounds
It was still a good morning biggest 10 weighed 54pound on topwater wade fishing.
