Man Catches Record-Setting 41.45 Pound Brown Trout on Manistee River in Michigan - Video 9/11/09

Here is video of a man who caught a record-setting brown trout on the Manistee River in Michigan. The trout weighed 41.45 lb., a new state record for Michigan, and maybe a national record:
An angler has landed the heaviest brown trout on record in Michigan.

The Ludington Daily News says Tom Healy of Rockford caught the 41-pound, 7 1/4-ounce trout Wednesday from a boat in the Manistee River.

Department of Natural Resources biologists have weighed the fish and confirm its type. The previous state record for brown trout was a 36-pound, 13-ounce specimen caught in Frankfort in 2007.

The Daily News says the catch might have broken a world record. Presently, that distinction belongs to a 40-pound, 4-ounce brown trout caught in 1992 on the Little Red River in Arkansas.
