I set the hook and let my 9 months pregnant wife Annie fight the fish. She did a terrific job and I'm very proud of her! I didn't get any measurements on the fish but it was a beautiful gator trout! She released it and we left with big smiles on our faces. It was really nice to have found trout amongst all the puppy drum”. Good picture. Tom Gilliam caught a nice Puppy Drum.
