@ Dave... it's a possible Upper Peninsula of Michigan Record... especially on the fly. It measured 31" long. It weighs around 30 pounds. It was over 9 inches tall from belly to back. It also had an incredible girth over feet long.
I'm not sure if there is any way to tell for sure. I am waiting for a return email from our DNR. Either way... I could care less. I was happy enough to just be privileged enough to fight and land this monster. We took some HD footage of it.
