Default Re: Lost the biggest trout of my life

Don't sweat it, it's part of fishing. I once hooked into a huge Striper(had to be in the 40lb+ range) only to have it break 65lb braid in about 30 seconds and straighten out two 2/0 trebble hooks(my bait popped up about 50yds away from where I hooked up after the fish broke me off). All I saw of the fish was a volley ball sized mouth when it ate my 8" top water plug(using gear). These things happen and it's what keeps up going back for more. You should just take it as a lesson learned and be happy you had the skill to even hook such a fish.
