wall Record 52 Pound Trout Caught, Then Seized By Officials!

Enormous lake trout far heavier than world record, but there’s a serious snag.

Minnesota angler seems to have exceeded limit, 52-pound fish seized.

(This link is SUPER SLOW.)
http://www.grindtv.com/outdoor/outposts/...ious-snag/

A Minnesota angler was on top of the world after a recent ice-fishing expedition across the border in Ontario, Canada, during which he reeled in an enormous lake trout that weighed 52 pounds, 3 ounces.

Rob Scott’s enthusiasm was understandable. It was the largest trout he had ever tangled with, by far, and he’d later learn that the 45-inch fish was nearly 24 pounds heavier than the existing world record for a tip-up-caught lake trout.

But three weeks after the February 8 catch on the Ontario side of Lac la Croix, Scott finds himself the subject of an Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources investigation, his fish-of-a-lifetime seized as evidence.

It turns out that also on February 8, before catching the behemoth, he landed a 4-pound lake trout, and the Ontario daily bag limit for the species is one per day.

What’s interesting, though, is how the 65-year-old U.S. Navy veteran was caught.

After landing the giant trout, he gave the 4-pound trout to another angler, and toted the big fish back to Minnesota via snowmobile. He had only one trout in possession, and seemed home free.

But two officers with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources had checked Scott’s fishing license on February 8, before he landed the 52-pounder. They had noticed the 4-pound trout.

“I called the Ontario officers and said I owed them an apology,” Scott said. “It wasn’t illegal for me to keep fishing after I caught the first trout. But when I caught the bigger fish, with the adrenaline and everything I had going, and the fact that it wasn’t going to survive if I released it, I figured if I gave the smaller fish away, that would be OK.”

Thanks He Man! chuckle


Wow, what a beautiful trout your dad caught!!!
He looks so proud and happy too. To me, that's one of the best things about
fishing. When you get down to it, that's what life should be like for us all.

What the hale!?! Nice catch, but I would eat the 4lb trout before I would eat the 52lb'r...

That would make a hale of a mount tho!!

I dunno if you can eat it. Generally when they get that size, they're old and the meat isn't the same. Good for mounting though.

At least, that's what they said when my ex caught the 40" pike. Too old to be good eats.

Damn you to hale Munny...where the hale have you been?!!!

It would have been nice if he could have kept that prize.
You're right, to have it mounted. Now, he gave away the 4 pounder and lost the big catch!

Good to see you Munny!

I've caught some pretty big trout and salmon on Lake Michigan, they're great if you smoke them.
