Default Finally broke my big trout curse!

Finally broke the big trout curse but i had to drive to Louisiana lol I did get her while fishing the Paddla Palooza kayak tournament. She got me 1st place trout against 280+ anglers. She ate a topwater in 2 feet of water deep in the marsh. Trout was 26inches

Here are some pics of the weekend.

Congrats. That's a really, really nice trout, oink, oink!! Did the hooks just fall out of her when taking the lure off?

Did you get a weight on it or was it catch photo release?

I assume she was around 6.5/7 lbs fresh out the water. She weighed 5.7lbs after being on ice for 8 hours. and she shrunk a inch. I normally wouldnt kill a big girl but i was in a tournament.

Nice trout Brandon. I'd say that's as good a time as any to break that curse

Just curious. What makes you think you lost a pound from putting the fish on ice? I have caught a lot of big trout and never had one lose a bunch of weight from putting it on ice.
