Another Matlacha Gator Trout

Kevin Barnes from Athens, GA scored this beautiful 24" speckled trout in the north part of Matlacha Pass with me yesterday.  He was tossing a green and white Clouser Minnow on an 8wt. rod.  We actually thought this fish was a snook when it first hit since it made such a violent strike.  This is the biggest trout on fly that I've had on my boat all year, and there are a lot more of them out there right now.
