Monster Lake Trout

Monster Lake Trout
31 lb Lake Trout

Jon Heath

Eden Prairie Minnesota



We were down rigging for Lake Trout when I thought I had snagged bottom. When the boat stopped, my reel was still singing as line was flying out. I knew it had to be a fish. It took almost 30 minutes until it was in the net. I don't think I could have lasted much longer. What a fish!Kasba Lake is in the NWT, Canada.
