State record Rainbow pulled!

Recommended Posts

The state record Rainbow trout, a 17-pound, 6-ounce fish caught near the Knife River in 1974, was removed at the request of the man who caught it. In a signed affidavit, Ottway Stuberud said the application was entered with incorrect information and asked that the record be removed.

The state record for Rainbow trout will revert to the previous record, a 15-pound, 7-ounce steelhead caught near Two Harbors in 1970 by Clifford Lovold.

There needs to be state records for in land stream trout!

I've always wondered why not? Especially with all of the State Management for Streams in MN!

ALl Trout records are from lakes or rivers adjoining the Great Lakes.

There should be a "inland" record being a true rainbow trout and a "coastal" record being a steelhead trout.
Looking at a true rainbow and steel head there is quite a difference in the two mainly being the difference in the body shape.

I think the biggest discrepency is between lake brooke trout and stream brooke trout. A 17 incher on a stream is a beast but is rather common on the lakes.

Hey Jim W., Don't forget us norderners who are out catching these stream trout in da lakes. We aren't as fortunate as y'all with all your streams but we still get some big rainbows up here in a few lakes. My buddy's got a nine pounder on his wall pulled from a local lake. Go get 'em.

No offense, but to me, if it isn't raised, swims and eats in a stream, it isn't a stream trout!lol

Not sure how we can push taht forward, but it is definitely worth investigating!!

There has been some very large trout caught in SE MN. However, it might have something to do with brude(sp?) stocked mega females etc. So differentiating, between them at the tape/scale might cause some heat!?

Well it's offical now. Scott Thorpe's 16-pound 6- ounce steelhead is being recognized as the new state record rainbow trout.
The trout was caught in the Devil Track River in Cook County more than 20 years ago.

    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
