Default Michigan Manistee Record Brown Trout

I like to see and read about big fish. I remember reading about this on internet and viewing a piece on CNN when it happened. The trout has been certified as a new state record and is pending certification as the new all-tackle world record.

41lbs 7oz brown trout while fishing for salmon.

On my plane ride home this week, I read about it again in Field & Stream.

Here's the link:

Here's the video from CNN:

That is definately one ultimate fish. If I ever get blessed enough to catch something like that some one call my wife, cause God is fixing to take me home. Man that's what dreams are made of.

Fish that big are caught on fly rods in TDF one of the fly fishing magazines discussed it recently.

I did not spend that much time on the article, but Iím pretty sure it did not state that many details:

how/when (time of day) it was caught?
what type of rod and # test of the line?
lures/baits/flies?

Itís funny, when I look back on those pictures, I think: HOW MUCH and WHAT does a fish like that eat?

Does anyone know if that fish was kept or somehow miraculously released....i am guessing 99% that it was kept to be put on the wall.
