Enormous New Zealand brown trout is possibly a world record

'It looked to me like a submarine,' angler says

March 28, 2013 by Pete Thomas

Otwin Kandolf said the brown trout he caught recently in New
Zealand looked like a submarine because it was so long and abnormally
fat. The behemoth, caught in a canal near a salmon farm, weighed 42
pounds, 1 ounce. It’s the heaviest brown trout ever caught in New
Zealand and could land Kandolf in the book of world records.

of record brown trout caught in New Zealand are screen grabs from
Channel 3 News. At 42 pounds, 1 ounce, it’s the heaviest trout caught in
New Zealand and could become a world record.

The weigh-in can be viewed here , via Channel 3 News.

“I just couldn’t believe it. It looked to me like a submarine,”
Kandolf told the news station. “Very ugly, small head, big belly … Just
amazing.”

The Channel 3 News report states that the fish is three pounds short of the world record. However, that

report is erroneous as the International Game Fish Association , which keeps world records, lists a 41-pound, 8-ounce brown trout as the all-tackle world record .

That specimen was pulled from Lake Michigan in 2010.

If Kandolf submits his catch to the IGFA, and it’s approved, Kandolf will be recognized as the world-record holder.

[Related: The biggest fish ever caught from a kayak.]

The trout measured 36.6 inches long and 10.6 inches wide. Apparently
it got so plump, and heavy, by feeding on pellets that drifted
downstream from the salmon farm.

Kandolf plans to have the catch mounted to hang on his wall.

It looks like a salmon to me. The large browns for our area don't look like that from Lake Michigan
