I believe they got the fish in 170 fow, on a White Paddle and Mirage type fly at 140' down.

The weight on 3 different scales was 31+ pounds.

True trophy. Congratulations to the young angler and crew! :thumb: Even with all the years he has to fish, I highly doubt this young man will ever catch a bigger LT. It's like shooting a 180" + buck your first season.

So many ugly scarred up clipped up lakers around - that one's pretty much perfect. Sweet.

I just raised my boat record from 14# to 16.2# on lakers; this one totally emasculates that.

Talked to the angler's uncle yesterday (I work with his wife). He said he had to help the youngster hold onto the pole as it was a long drag/fight to crank the beast to the boat--and they were BOTH tired by the end! He wasn't sure of the weight and it may not have gotten to a certified scale, but did end up with the taxidermist. Its tail went well up the side of the cooler and the cap'n was totally amazed by its size. Made the mid-teen kings they got look small!

Jake said the certified weight came in at just over 33#.

Thats a Monster, Jimmy (It-Il-Do) also got a Huge King last year around 29lbs i believe
