I know this is a Smokey mtn trout forum but I thought this was a interesting picture and most people don't post on the other topics sections of this board. I had seen this trout a few years ago but forgot about it till I came across it earlier. This is the NC state record Rainbow. I believe it was around 21 pounds The girl caught it on a rapala in the horsepature river. I have never seen a trout anywhere close to that big around these parts. I guess it was just a freak of nature. What do you guys think?
