Saskatchewan Produces Record Rainbow
Adam Konrad of Saskatoon caught
the monster trout in
located in the province’s
southwest. The record-breaker weighed in at whooping 43.6 pounds,
with a length of 38.75 inches and a girth measurement of 34 inches.
The previous world record weighed 43.2 pounds and was caught in
Alaska in 1970.
Adam Konrad and his twin brother
Sean have made past news headlines, breaking the provincial rainbow
trout record three times last July with catches weighing 28.39,
30.0, and 33.3 pounds. By fall, the brothers smashed their own
record with a 34.5-pound lunker. In the past two fishing seasons,
the Konrads have reportedly caught and released back into Lake
Diefenbaker more than 200 rainbow trout exceeding 20 pounds and at
least a dozen more weighing over 30 pounds.
