Last I heard they were not going to allow it as a record, due to the fact it was a triploid (genetically altered) trout.

Nothing in the water there- they are triploid trout- rainbows whose eggs are immersed into warm water for a period of time. This creates large healthy trout that do not waste energy on reproduction. They just swim & eat. They grow to immense sizes & are stocked in a few waters. Where the fish in the pic. was caught, the lake only has open water for about three months out the year-a fairly remote lake without alot of pressure.
