Huge Charleston Trout Caught on Trout Eye Jig

Last week we received another great testimonial for Trout Eye jigs and Z-Man soft plastics, when Captain Justin Carter of DIG Charters caught the biggest trout in recent memory in Charleston.  This huge fish was over 10 lbs and released.  It was just about 1 lb under the state record.

Justin said “She was released. I have a self imposed 20″ limit on trout. Caught on Trout Eye with a Z-Man Pearl Blue SwimmerZ. She measured 28″ which is by far the thickest fish I have ever caught. However I have caught several longer trout but all of them have come out of Florida and none had shoulders like this one. The girth on the trout this year has been unreal. I had a 25″ two weeks ago that went over 6 lbs.”

A big congrats to Justin on a fish of a lifetime.  We are glad to be a part of such an amazing South Carolina catch (and release).
