Trout caught in Colorado is definitely a lifetime catch, but is it a record?

Scott Enloe and his son, Hunter, reeled in a monster while fishing at the Blue Mesa Reservoir in Colorado earlier this month.

The duo were out on the boat when a fish took the bait. Their almost 15-minute battle brought in a massive 73.29 lb trout measuring almost four feet long!

Enloe weighed and released the fish, which may hurt him when it comes to setting a record. “I released the fish alive, and as bad as it sounds, they frown upon that, they want to kill the fish. But this fish was estimated to be a 60-year-old fish, possibly an original fish when they impounded Blue Mesa Reservoir,” he stated, according to FOX 5.

The Colorado state trout record was set back in 2007 at 50 lbs from the same reservoir. The previous world record, caught in Canada 30 years ago, weighed in at 72 lbs.
