POTENTIAL WORLD RECORD BROWN TROUT
A potential world record brown trout was caught yesterday, July 16, by Roger Hellen. Hellen was fishing in the Salmon-A-Rama out of Racine Wisconsin on Lake Michigan. The monster brown trout weighed in at 41 pounds 8 ounces. The brown was weighed on certified scales at a local meat market and witnessed by at least 3 others.
Currently, the world record brown trout is 41 pounds 7 ounces which is recognized by the IGFA. The record was caught by Tom Healy on Sept. 9, 2009, from the Manistee River in Michigan.
