Default Stud trout make the world go round!

My roommate and I loaded up our gear last night with plans to get an early start and try to gig a flounder before sunrise. We launched and got to a good flat but didn't find any flatties. I picked up a slot red off a dock light though. The next few hours were spent bumping bottom looking for the elusive flatty but to no avail. I found a really big school of mullet and was standing up sight fishing hoping to see a redfish or something. And then I did...for about a second I saw just the tail of a BIG trout! I instantly git excited. I sat down to avoid being seen by any other big specks in the area, picked up my trusty Ole vudu shrimp and starting working the area. A few minutes later I get bit and it is a hoss! Definitely one of the fattest trout I've caught and she measured right at 26". My roommate was nowhere to be seen at the time and as I'm fighting the fish I hear someone calling out to me. A guy working on a house saw me hook up and came out onto the dock and was kind enough to snap a picture for me. Turns out he was a fellow PFF member. Thanks Farepoint and nice meeting you btw. After that my roommate showed up and caught a really nice redfish. We continued looking for anything else that would bite and all I managed to catch is a big blue crab. All in all it was a great day even though I missed at least 3 flounder and my roommate missed even more than that. Hook-shaking bastards! Can't wait to get after them again

Nice job Bo, good looking fish man! Nice read too. Hey man, you mentioned trying to "gig" a flounder. Did u mean landing one with rod n reel, or pole spear from the yak? Just askin cuz I've always thought about gigging flounder from the yak, or giving it a shot anyway.
