Congrats on your record fish! lol Yeah, obviously the odd’s are it will never happen but I feel like depending on where I’m at if I caught a record sized fish id just let it go. It would be so much nicer to measure and snap a photo than to haul a 5 pound fish out of the mountains.
I was looking over the WA records wondering if Angus Kerr was Hi-Laker or Trailblazer? he has the record for westslope and had the GT record before it was broken in 2020. I thought it was interesting that one guy had two separate record’s from two lakes that are right over the ridge from each other.
