Minnesota man catches world record-sized lake trout


A Duluth man has been certified as the new ice-fishing world record holder for the largest lake trout, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

Bruce Sederberg caught the 46 inch lake trout -- which likely weighed more than 40 pounds -- while ice-fishing with three friends on White Otter Lake northwest of Atikokan, Ontario, Jan. 18.

The National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, based in Hayward, Wis., certified the record Feb. 8.

The Hall of Fame says the previous catch-and-release ice-fishing world record was for a 44 inch lake trout caught by a man from International Falls.
