Video: Big Manitoba Lake Trout Barely Fits Through the Hole in the Ice

Sometimes one fish makes a trip worth it.

It can be utterly frustrating to travel a long way from home for a fishing trip and then come up short. But sometimes, it takes just one fish to turn things around. That was the case in this latest video from apbassing.

He’s all the way up in Manitoba hoping to catch a big lake trout with his buddy, Spencer. What they end up catching makes all the frustration totally worth it!

You know it’s a big fish when it barely fits through the hole in the ice! What a mondo lake trout that was! The excitement in this video was palpable.

As these guys note, this fish was likely extremely old. A fish smaller than this one was recently caught in Lake Superior that turned out to be a ripe old 46 years of age! That means it was swimming around the lake first during the Nixon administration. Who knows how old this giant was, but it was certainly an awesome experience to catch on video.
