Default 43 inch brown on 5x in South Holston

I apologize if this has already been posted here and I somehow missed it. It was taken by Travis France on December 24th, and released. 5x tippet, and without a net. Travis says he also hooked and lost a male nearly the same size close by that day. This fish looks like it could be about 25 or 30 pounds to me.

What a fish! Congrats

Amazing what a few regs will do to a fishery.

I have seen this pic on a cell phone. This one is much clearer. I heard the tape measure formula came to around 35lbs.

Gentlemen this is where you study the background setting real hard and find that spot in the river

That almost looks TOO big... I enjoy my 16-18 inchers, haven't caught anything bigger (that I know of).

I already know where that is at, but that doesn't mean I can catch one.

I bet you could... You've caught much larger fish than I have at least.
