Monster Lake Trout-worth the drive!

Lake Trout


Luke Bartel

Aurora Colorado

My dad and I drove from Denver, CO to Yellowknife, NWT in hopes of catching a big fish. In the last 20 minutes of fishing for our entire trip I hooked into this Lake Trout. A broken reel and a half an hour later we landed her.Notes: The person in the picture (me) is 6'8", so the fish is even bigger than it looks. And this fish was caught in NWT, CANADA, which is not an option in the "State Caught" drop down menu of the application.
