Took my little cousins out one last time today and it was a pretty slow day caught maybe 10 small bass overall, the kids had to be home soon so we started heading out and as im passing one of my spots i was planning on skipping i just see trout tearing up the surface, i go down real quick cast out a big spinner right away had something on then it came off and about 200 stocker trout come chasing my lure and all of a sudden i see a MONSTER, i cast again and the next thing i know theres 2 more monsters. These trout looked like fucking carp no bullshit they were massive i would have to say easily 27-30 inches, I have not done much serious trout fishing so these were by far the biggest trout I've ever seen. They followed my lure multiple times but those bastards were smarter than most, we already had basically no time to fish but the boys wanted to try to catch smaller trout which was inevitable with the smaller spinner but i saw those fish and went into happy kid mode and told them to step back! I fished for maybe 15 min, we were late to begin with, and then we really had to go
these trout were so damn big, their heads had to be atleast 3-4 inches wide. They literally looked like carp. Well theres that i had to vent here cause i couldn't do too much of it infront of kids
On a side note what do you guys use for big trout, i was throwing a number 5 mepps at them and they would follow it but then swim off, i know these fish are smart, they are that big for a reason.
