It's a beautiful fish, nobody can deny that. I'm thinking a very close fishing friend was reading the scale. That's OK though because we are all fisherman and I wish that had caught it.

Wow.  This same guy has  done this at least 3 years in a row now.  Wonder if he gets one out of the the same spot each year or even coincidentally catches the same one?

That guy is amazing!  Makes my Browns from my last trip seem so puny!  I'm envious! :fishing3:

Wow, another beauty from this guy. I think it's all about his lucky blue sweat shirt.

He always seems to find the Big Browns, I bet that's a rush (no pun intended).

It`s about 21lb`s bigger than any of the trout I just caught up there last weekend  :rotflmao:

Pretty easy when you catch the same Trout every year. I'm sorry that I'm hating on this post, but its true.
