The two biggest fish I've seen caught back to back on ice.



Iíve never seen a fish fight so hard through the ice. The battle lasted 15 nerve-racking minutes and ended with an intense showdown at the hole including a lost rod and failed tail grab attempt by yours truly. Needless to say there was a lot of screaming, yelling and high fives when we finally got her topside. The best part? Itís all on video! Oh and 30 minutes later he landed the fish pictured below in the same spot...



Here is the second giant lake trout that that my buddy caught last weekend. He lost his lake trout rod down the hole after the first one so he was stuck using his walleye rod which is much smaller/lighter. I can't believe how lucky he got! Probably should buy a lottery ticket...

very well done.  :tipup: what part of the country was that? I watched without sound Im at work. By the expression on your face it seemed he was really cranking down on that rod, your hands must have been cramped up.

This in good old Montucky! I was actually behind the camera for this one but yes that fish was kicking his butt for a while. He said it felt like his hand was going to fall off lol

Congrats on a nice double on the Lake trout!
Reminds me of something that happened years ago, we had just started a night troll and my buddy hooked into a big fish that ripped him off and he lost a prime lure that was no longer available. I tied another one of the lures on for him and jokingly said "lets go back and start the troll again, big fish usually travel in pairs", he gave me "the look"! We started the troll again and he hooked in to another fish that ripped him off and he lost another one of those lures, his exact words were "now get the **** out of here, I just lost two of my good lures"!  :laugh:
