Something seems "fishy" about that picture.

Looks like a Mulloway or Jewfish. Both are nicknames given to several species of Drum in Australia, South Africa and NZ.

It also just looks like a big Weakfish from the NorthEast

He is also holding the damn thing straight out which is further proof that doing so in a pic screws the pic up and makes others call BS

If you look closely it appears to have 2 dorsal fins, which isn't typical of Weakfish if I remember correctly.

The hurricane has kept me out of the water since Monday and I can't stop thinking about getting back out there. I googled speckled trout and this photo came up. I saw the spots on the fins and thought it may be. I questioned it though because of the size and look of its scales.

Weakfish do have 2 seperate dorsal fins, just like a speck. The mouth just doesnt look right for a weakfish either though which is why I thought it might be another drum species from Australia or elsewhere.

On another look, I'd say a big ass Weakfish
