    This record is a few years old. I was at Bass Pro today and there was a foundation that was displaying a few record elk and this Rainbow Trout that was 31 pounds 12 ounces, caught somewhere in New Mexico, sorry I dont remember where. The guy told me it had a few brown trout in its gut. IGFA Certified.

    Yeah I caught that fish the year before at Santa Cruz, He was only 28lbs then and I figured I let him grow to 30lbs. That damned guy stole my trout out of my secret spot!:smile2:
