Field & Stream report a huge brown trout was caught in Lake Michigan, Wisconsin on July 16th which if ratified will break the current world record.

Roger Hellen likely set a new world record when he hauled this 41-pound, 8-ounce brown trout from Lake Michigan Friday July, 16, during the 35th annual Salmon-A-Rama Sportfishing Tournament in Racine, Wisconsin. Hellen (right, with fishing partner Joe Miller) boated the big brown while trolling off Wind Point, north of Racine.

Caught whilst trolling - still, its a huge fish ! For me - if I can't spot the fish before I cast and I'm not using a fly rod, well its just not fishing
