fishing user avatarJ Francho reply : 

C'mon guys, verify your sources before posting new "world" records.

This fish was caught in 2007 in CANADA!

It is a triploid (genetically engineered, sterile) rainbow that escaped from a hatchery many years ago.  The theory is that since none of their energy is spent on completing the rigorous spawning run, that they get huge.  I'll say.  Some don't think the fish qualifies, since its a triploid - whatever!  

The twin brothers have been trophy hunting this particular lake in Saskatchewan for a while.  There was a very good feature story in Salmon Trout Steelheader last year that detailed a weekend spent fishing with these guys.They offer a guide service up there now as well.  IIRC, the fish was caught on live bait.

You have a lot to learn about trout fishing, and its secrets, LOL.  I know PLENTY of guys that will stick some gaudy ESL in the fish's mouth, when I know too well he caught it on a pink worm.  ;D

A little off topic, but still "trout"...

I fish the White River where, rumor has it, this German Brown was

caught and transported to the Red River:

fishing user avatarPaul Roberts reply : 

RW,

I remember when that fish was caught, and was at a fly-fishing show where the mount was displayed. It was simply...unbelievable! :o

I remember something that intrigued me. It had a wear mark on the  upper lobe of its tail fin. I could just picture that 'ol monster spending it's "off hours" holding under some big deadfall.

From what I remember I thought it was caught in the White. I hadn't heard the Red River rumor. Either way, an almost scary creature! You should see the mouth and teeth on that beast!


fishing user avatarJ Francho reply : 

My PB brown is 22 lbs.  I have at least a dozen surpassing 15 lbs.  I cannot even imagine what something nearly twice the mass would be like catching. For reference, this egg laden hen was around 12, IIRC:

Here's the story which was told to me "first hand":

The fish was a brood trout which was released into the White River

and monitored. It stayed in a somewhat isolated pool. According to

my witness, the Arkansas DNR shocked the area and retrieved the

trout.

Several days later the new World Record was landed on the banks

of a new housing project on the Little Red River, which was financed

by a developer and a number of notable politicians. Coincidence?

Anyhow, that's the story.

::)

Can you say "insider information"?  Wow.


fishing user avatarPaul Roberts reply : 

Interesting. Thanks RW ... I think :(.  Record fish tend to be freaks -truly unique fish. I guess it's not surprising that there was more (or make that less) to the story. Bummer.

John brings up sterile fish. It's quite true. The NY state record steelhead (at the time) was 26+lbs (caught fair and square) and was determined to be a sterile fish that never made a spawning run -It just kept on growing.
