83 Pound Lake Trout

Long time resident of Deline, N.W.T, George Kenny netted himself one hell of a trout. This incredible fish weighed 83lbs (38kg) and despite his best efforts to release the fish, he knew it wasn’t going to make it. For most people a trout like this is a once in a lifetime fish, but for George Kenny, it was just another day at the office. He says he caught a much bigger one last year that he immediately released.

It is believed that a trout this size would be around 20 years old!
