New world record/state record brown?

Recommended Posts

Anyone over that way hear of a new pending state/world record brown trout caught out of Racine this past weekend during their trout and salmon tourney? I heard through the grapevine it was 4 lbs bigger then the current state record and 1 oz more then the current world record fish. If anyone can confirm this and or post pics it would be appreciated! I heard it weighed in at 41 lbs 8 ozs which would best the WR by an once and that they were working on getting the scales recertified. Sounds like the story and pics will be in the Wi.ODN in 2 weeks as reported by Kevin Naze a staff writer.

It was on TV too. There were some more pics and info on another forum I read for Lake Michigan reports. The Green Bay Gazette has an article and photo. The Salmon-A-Rama tournament HSOforum has a bunch of photos as well, since it was caught as part of the tournament.

There was also a big pic on the Pioneer press this past Sunday on the back of the sports section. That thing was unreal and just a behemoth! Cheetah, you and Sutty heading back out? I'll be in Algoma this weekend. Sounds like the bite has been tough but with a couple days of south winds maybe things will pick up.

Roger Hellen and his fishing partner Joe Miller netted the 41-pound, 8-ouncer on July 16 at the annual Salmon-A-Rama fishing contest on Lake Michigan in Racine.

Hellen is still hoping for further certification from the International Game Fish Association in Florida. He edged out the previous record set last Sept. 9 by Tom Healy, who caught a 41-pound, 7-ouncer in the Manistee River in Michigan.

That's a true pig right there. I've got a few that were low 30's but can't imagine what that one felt like. Speaking of that, I'll be getting some smoked fish from buddy that fishes that tournie. Always look fwd to that.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
