monster lake troutLAKE SUPERIOR (UNDATED) — In a recent video posted to YouTube by an ice fishing show, two men fishing on a crystal clear Lake Superior are shocked when they land a massive lake trout.

The video was posted by JigHeadsTV on February 20, but a date is not provided for when the fish was actually caught.  If you think the fish doesn’t appear that impressive while it’s still under the ice, jump to the 2:25 mark for when they finally bring it out.

Not only is the catch impressive, but the anglers also opt to release it once they get a couple of good shots with it.  Watch the video below (HD available in settings)
