Lol . I've never caught one over 30" on a rod and reel. I've come close ! Lots of upper 20's with 29 being my biggest. But when I was young back in the time of gill nets , we caught some over 30".

In all seriousness, I have also HEARD of some big trout being caught, even in hard to fish black water but no one has been able to produce a photo.

I'd love to see a pic.

I hardly trout fish in pcola, so anything I've caught over 30" is irrelevant to this convo, but I used to weigh fish every now and again for customers fishing big lagoon that would be 30-31". Definitely wasn't a common occurrence but they are there.

Best one I ever weighed for a customer was 10.2lb fish. Tourists fishing on perdido key and didn't even know what the fish was. Awesome

That just proves to me that there is no substitute for spending time on the water.

I've only caught/seen a trout over 26" one time and it was my PB that was 29 1/8" caught behind grand Marlin when I got off work one day.
