Just for the record a 52-pound, 3-ounce Lake Trout.....is a bit shy of the world record:

Angler Lloyd Bull
Weight of Fish 32.65 kg (72 lbs 0 oz)
Length of Fish 149.86 cm ( 59 in)
Girth of Fish 81.28 cm ( 32 in)
Location of Catch Great Bear Lake
Date of Catch 8/19/1995
Type of Rod Phillipson
Type of Reel Penn 49 M
Type of Line Cortland
Line Size 30 lb
Method of Catch Trolling
Lure or Bait Husky Daredevil

Don't get me wrong, I understand how the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame maintains a seperate "Ice Fishing Record", yet part of the reason it is not recognized the world over is due to "fair play, fair catch" guidelines.

B.E.F.
