My Story

It was a nice day for fishing. I casted in and as soon as it hit I could not reel, meaning I got snagged or I got a lunker. I looked in the water, it was a huge fish. I saw it just a little so I thought it was a brown trout, because they usally grow the biggest. I played the beast for at least five minutes. I brought it to shore and knew it had to be a hybrid. It turned out to be a tiger trout & was 25 inches long and 3 1/2 pounds. It was truly the fish of a lifetime.
