Slab of the Month: Potential Record-Breaking Lake Trout

Scott Enloe, a Colorado nature enthusiast, snagged what could potentially be recognized as the new world-record lake trout during a fishing trip with his son, Hunter, on May 5. The handheld scale aboard their boat indicated the fish weighed 73.29 pounds. This extraordinary catch is over 20 pounds heavier than the existing state-record lake trout and exceeds the IGFA all-tackle world record for the species by more than a pound.
