Check out this potential world record brown trout caught by an ice fisherman on the frozen Milwaukee Harbor.
Milwaukee fishing guide Eric Haataja posted the video to YouTube yesterday. In the video, one of Haataja’s clients pulls in what could be a world record brown trout from a 10-inch ice hole on the Milwaukee Harbor on Lake Michigan. His catch measured 39 inches long — one inch longer than the International Game Fish Association’s world record.

“As far as we know this is the largest Brown Trout ever filmed while ice fishing,” Haataja said. “We catch the biggest browns in the world through the ice in the Milwaukee Harbor.”
Here’s the video of the potential world record brown trout.
This isn’t the first video we’ve posted from Haataja. Last December, we shared a video of Haataja pulling a funny ice fishing prank on one of his clients.
