Posted on March 20th, 2016

Brice Helms from Nelson, New Zealand reported an unbelievable fishing day on the canals near Twizel, South Island, New Zealand in December 2015. He caught and released Brown Trout in the 30,  25, & 32 lb range.

The new New Zealand record 42 lb. Rainbow Trout with an enormous girth and nearly 90 cm long.

And on the way back to the car he made another stop for some casts and caught a fat Brown Trout over 42 lb! He was fishing alone with no net. So he took quick measurements, a few hasty snapshots and quickly weighed it.  With four trout having a total weight of around 59 kg (130 lb) this could be the biggest one-day trout catch of all time!
