Talk about a monster! Here’s an 83-pound Lake Trout (mackinaw) from Great Bear Lake in the NW Territories!
The massive best was harvested in a gill net by Deline First Nation. They apparently tried to revive the fish but it was already dead.
The All-Tackle rod and reel record for lake trout also came from Great Bear and weighed 72 pounds, so this fish would gave obliterated the record had it been caught with hook and line.
