Eric Haataja is known for catching huge brown trout.
If you don’t believe us, just believe his current brown trout IGFA all-tackle length world record. The thing is, Haataja catches huge brown trout for most of the year, and so do his clients. As you are about to see, one his clients land a monster brown, and a monster steelhead before they even launch the boat into Milwaukee harbor.
Unbelievably, these giant fish were caught literally, right off the dock.
So how about that for a huge brown trout? Seeing as those monsters are lake runs, they just get big. That steelhead was nothing to laugh at either. Catching a steelhead that big would make most fishermen’s season.
If you would be interested in getting in on some fish just like this, check out Haataja’s website. These days he might be pretty hard to book, but giving him a phone call for some availability might not be a bad idea. When you see clients catching fish like you just saw, it’s easy to see why his services would be in such high demand.
Goodness gracious that is one huge brown trout! That steelhead sure wasn’t bad either!
