Found some sea lice on the floor of the boat. This fish had the look of a sea run fish , big shoulders. Also tossing that cabelas rod gets a little tiring but gives the plugs great action.:yes: Estimated weight 14lbs

A strange but FINE looking fish indeed. Although no stripes, it does have those big shoulders and head of a hard-fighting healthy fish. :yes:

Kinda looks like a sea trout. Seems to have a pinkish tone and splotches instead of stripes.
What kind of reel is that BTW?

No issue with the taste. I fried nuggets rolled in ritz crackers in cast iron skillet. The rod was purchased at cabelas, line is 30lb PP, the reel is an old abu garcia , not sure of the model# but it is a smooth reel for its age. 10 years old. Gotta love those topwater explosions.:))

I've seen those and they are way more common than a stripeless one.
