She was out on the water with reknown fishing guide Paul "PK" Kubilis (known by many in the Sarasota area as "The Trout King of South Lido"), who made her hold the fish so that photographic evidence of the catch could be obtained. Since the redfish was longer than the upper legal limit of 27 inches, it was resuscitated and released back into the wild.
