We’ve got video of him throwing it back. So if you’re in the neighborhood, you just might catch it too!

When you set a new State Record for Trout, you can stop with the ‘aw-shucks, I’m not really a fisherman’.

Dude, face it. You are a fisherman.

With THIS catch, you’re actually the envy of a lot of other real-deal fishermen.

That is…

One.

Big.

Fish.

Sidney Cellan of Soda Springs, Idaho, is now in the Utah record books.

Cellan caught a 48-inch lake trout at Flaming Gorge Reservoir on July 3, setting a new Utah catch-and-release fishing record, according to the state’s Division of Wildlife Resources.

“It weighed 57 pounds. It took about 30 minutes to bring in,” said Sid Cellan of his record breaking lake trout in an exclusive interview with Fox 13’s Matt McDonald.

The 48-inch trout was brought up from roughly 80 feet of water in Flaming Gorge during the first week of July. Cellan was fishing with a guide out of Utah, Jim Miller from Creative Fishing Adventures.–Fox
