Record class size rainbow trout
« on: Jun 04, 2009, 08:42 PM »
I found this photo on another site. This trout is beyond words for size. It was 34" long and weighed over 30 lbs.  It was caught in Saskatchewan. This is the actual photo of the fish and the guy who caught it. No photoshopping....the real deal.

Whats the deal with triploed trout? Are they genetically modified to grow huge or something?

Basically YES. The triploid condition produces a much faster metabolism than normal fish. They are sterile so instead of using energy to spawn they just keep eating and growing. This fish was an escapee from a fish farm on Lake Diefenbacher in SK.  I didn't see the girth measurement but the trout is obviously OBESE.  ;D

Here's another one caught by the same guy. This one was 26 lbs.

There's a pair of brothers that target these giants. They hold the all tackle world record at over 43#.   :o

Not coincidentally, the guy who caught the ones I posted fishes the same area as the twins. Believe it or not, I have a standing invitation from him to go up to SK and he will try to get me hooked up with one.  ;D  For those(like me!) who can't get enough of looking at enormous trout, here's another one....36 lbs!!!

Those are some fat fish.  I can't imagine reeling one of those hogs in!
