Now that’s a fish!
Summer and fall may have the reputation in Wyoming as prime fishing season but don’t tell that to Rock Springs fisherman Shane Dubois.
The professional fishing guide showed off his talents last week when he caught a gargantuan lake trout at Flaming Gorge.
“Damn, did you put a saddle on that beast?” asked one of his friends on Facebook.
“I thought about it,” Dubois said. “All I could do to just hold it with my elbows at my side for a decent pic.”
“That must have felt like you were hauling in a piano!” another friend wrote.
The monstrous fish looks about as large as Dubois.
In reality, the fish measured 44 inches long and weighed 39 pounds.
A record? Nope. The record is 48 inches long and 50 pounds. It was caught in 1995, also at Flaming Gorge
Maybe it’s the same fish. After all, DuBois said he safely released this one…
