Old news. Not near world record.

Right. Nowhere near a world record. And an old video that's made the rounds over and over.

ahh damn....I had no idea whether or not it was near world record that was just the title, still a big fish none the less

Only f***ing douchebags kill "near world record" fish.

The way I see it. Things are different up in Canada. More water and bigger water with an exponential more amount of big fish with much less fisherman. Those waters do not face anything like the challenges we face with Lake trout. My guess is that if these fisherman were from and in Colorado, this video would have been different. They definitely don't appear to be the slob type ignoramuses that we see down here killing big fish. Judging by their gear, they look like very avid laker fisherman with some class. Up there, selective harvest might involve taking a few bigger fish to help keep the other big fish big. Its not like that here in Colorado, If you kill a big fish, another one does not take its place.

Exactly my thoughts, fordo. Our people to fish able waters ratio is quite sad, in comparison to say MN or MT. Keeping populations in check is not an issue here on most lakes.

Canada takes care of their fisheries, most lodges are catch and release on larger fish and single barbless hooks only. Fishing matters there and they take it serious, here it's a secondary issue behind water management.

Yep, More and more people are enjoying laker fishing but water management is first. Our manmade waters, made into artificial fisheries, with artificial trout and artificial salmon are totally different and just don't compare to up north. Were lucky to have lakers introduced to the reservoirs, a species that can naturally reproduce, give great angling opportunity by getting real big and strong fighting. most people like to eat them, and they aren't all that destructive of a predator that seem to consume a variety and balance of forage from plankton on up.
