New World Record Speckled Trout

Bill Keslick, of Northshore boated the new world record speckled trout yesterday. It weighed in at 25 lbs, 9-1/2 ounces. When asked how he reeled it in, Bill responded, “Holy Guacamole, I couldn’t believe that when I ran out of cocahoe minnows I put a Dorito on a hook just for laughs and cast that sucker as far into the school of shad at the Rigolles. Lo and behold, that sucker struck immediately and took me nearly 5 hours to reel in on my Zebco Soopy rod and reall with 6 lb test line.
