Tallmadge angler reels in what looks to be a record-breaking trout

AVON POINT -- A state record that has stood for 14 years may soon topple. A Tallmadge fisherman has reeled in what's expected to be a record-breaking steelhead trout.

While fishing the waters of Lake Erie off Avon Point, Jason Brooks caught a steelhead measuring 38 inches in length and weighing 21.3 pounds.

The fish was weighed on a certified scale and checked by the Division of Wildlife.

The next step to the state record is to have the catch verified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio.

The current record holder weighed in at 20.83 pounds. The fish was caught in 1995 near the same spot off Avon Point.
