Father and son have a whopper of a fish tale – and an equally cool mount to remind them of the memory!
Adam Schreiber and his son Braxton shared a special moment on July 3, 2015. It was on that day, while trolling the depths of Cree Lake, in Saskatchewan, Canada, that eight-year-old Braxton hooked into a giant of a lake trout that gave him a fight he’ll never forget.
The monster laker fell for a white and pink Kwikfish lure, and with a little help from Dad, Braxton was able to win the tug-of-war and get the fish in the boat. Wanting to release this trophy lake trout, a quick measurement was taken: 48 inches long with a 32-inch girth. The fish bottomed out the 50-pound scale the boys had in the boat!
Fast forward to April 29, 2017. What showed up on that day was a massive cardboard box with, you guessed it, a fiberglass replica mount of their trophy fish. Created by Advanced Taxidermy, this mount is about as pretty as they get.
Here’s a short video showing the unboxing. Sure looks like Christmas, doesn’t it?
Talk about one heck of a fish story!
Way to go Adam and Braxton! That’s a father-son memory that is sure to last a lifetime.
