Lets head to lake Desmet

While sampling Lake DeSmet in late
May, the Sheridan Fish Management Crew
caught a large brown trout in one of the gill
nets. The brown measured 34 inches and
quickly “bottomed out” the 20 pound scale
the Crew had with them. The Fish Manage-
ment Crew speculates the fish probably
weighed close to the state record, which is
25 pounds 13 ounces. The fish quickly
swam away when it was released back into
the lake.

Hard to imagine catching one like that? Especially since I only use 8lb test!
