Default Re: Lost the biggest trout of my life

It can and does happen to anyone who fishes a lot. I rarely ever keep a trout I catch and I release them as quickly as I can. The only large trout I kept was a 25 inch Rainbow I caught in a lake in Colorado while belly boating and I knew they allowed bait fishing on the lake so I kept it and had it mounted. Two weeks later I was fishing Spinney Reservoir in Colorado in my belly boat and I caught a 25 inch cutbow and I was going to keep it and have it mounted and while I was removing the hook he jumped of my mesh line keeper on my belley boat and got away. At first I was upset but then I thought the fish won that day fair and square and maybe I'd catch him or another like him another day when I fish Spinney again.
