Yeah I'd say 2 foot would be a conservative estimate. Felt like a steelhead the way it smashed my spinner haha

At least you know where that pig is. Will be that much sweeter when you catch it.

Boy do I know that feeling.

If it's any consolation, big Trout get that size by learning how to avoid being easily caught. Go back in the fall when the Trout are fattening up for the spawn and feeding aggressively. You might get a second chance at it then.
