I'm pretty heavy and have a lot of freckles.
Not sure if that fits the criteria though...

Was late April, fishing drop-offs that went from about 2ft of water into over 6ft. Using a Zoom fluke in Albino Shad on a 1/8oz head. About 3 casts in on the first drop I got a big ass Croaker. Pulled him in quick and threw again slightly further down the drop. Connected again and it was just heavy, like a big Croaker feels upon hookup. My friend was in a yak near me and I started acting like a jackass doing a jerky, back-and-forth thing with the rod like some of the guys on TV who try to be dramatic. That big Trout came up shaking its head on top and I got serious reallllly quick!

I had 8lb mono tied straight to the jig so I played the fish out a good bit. I tried to keep her alive so I could release, but the scales for the tourney opened too late and she didn't make it. Kept her vacuum sealed with the idea that I'd mount it but a freezer mishap led to that beautiful fish being wasted. I hated it but what could I do. I was hesitant on mounting because, while that was certainly the most valuable Trout I've caught, it wasn't my biggest and I'm holding out for one over 10lbs before I mount another. I've got a 9lb 2oz fish on the wall now that also died. I try to release most if I can help it but sometimes they just don't make it.
