A fisherman on the Manistee River here in Michigan just landed what's believed to be a world record brown trout. It weighed 41 lbs., 7.5 oz., smashing the state record by nearly 5 lbs., and the world record by about 4 oz. That's a fish!

I read the headline about that today, but the article I read didn't have a picture. That's absolutely amazing!! I wonder what weight his line was? I mean....my stars, that fish is ginormous - and I'm sure he wasn't expecting to catch a fish that size.

I've been looking around, but haven't been able to find anything about the line. Probably pretty heavy test, though, because they were fishing for salmon.

Here's a video about it. The guy in the pic above isn't the one who caught the fish. He's the fishing guide who took Tom Healy, who landed it, down the river. Also, the scale in the video shows 41.45 lbs., but it was actually a few ounces heavier than that, after they recalibrated the scale.

That is some fish. He must have put up one heck of a fight.

I love your idea Rhonda, those fries look good.





Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

Kinda makes you sad though, doesn't it? That fish has swam around for so long getting to that size and now that's it. I'd almost want to throw it back in the water & free it again...then I start thinking about all the Long John Silvers I can eat!

We could have used a fish about that size to feed all of us at our recent picnic.

Truly, that is amazing. I can't imagine the excitement he must have felt reeling him in!!

I can't help but think of "Walter" in the movie "On Golden Pond"...anyone remember that? Norman and Bill go out on the water in search of "Walter" (who is a gigantic catfish as I recall) and actually catch it, but they decide to let him go.

Love that video and article Rob---so neat that it happened to that man!
