Default Got a couple "gators" today

Fished the bay for kings today but with no runs. So I decided to drop a live menhaden by some structure in 35' of water. It gets slammed and I pull up a 21" white trout!

I switch to light tackle and drop half a menhaden and get 20" trout followed by a few 18" fish.

I know they are not the gators you were expecting but these are the biggest white trout I have ever caught. My mirage drive broke on the way in.....still had fun tho!

Dang suck about the Drive.. Ive seen enough to order the repair kit to keep onboard in case this ever happens .. although i'm not sure how easy it will be to repair while on the water.

NIce trout either way!
My favorite time of the year to fish inshore is coming up but I wont be there to enjoy it..

Default Elaborate on part that broke on drive please

CY, nice trout indeed! Could you ID the part of the drive that broke. From the pic, it looks like the rod that extends into the flipper. I am new to the OB and mirage drive systems and am just trying to be prepared. They paddle like crap, but I really like peddling anyways!

Cheers and sorry to read about the failure.

Holy sh#t those are big ass white trout!

Did you hit a shallow spot and snap the mirage drive? Sucks either way.

That's freaking awesome yakker! Have you checked the records on white trout? That's the biggest I've ever seen.
