Got a late start and did not get in the water till about 8:45 so was not expecting much. Fished a reef and lost two Trout and decided to move near the flood Gate. This produced nothing but did find a big dead trout. It was right at 28 inches and had its belly cut open and insides removed. Why would some one want to wast a nice trout like that. I believe that you should either mount it or let it or unless you are in a tournament.
