Look out the size of this effing fish
recently caught at Lake Taneycomo
by 49-year-old Scott Sandusky
Yeah, it's a new Missouri record: a 28-pound, 12-oz brown trout.
The world record was ten pounds heavier and caught up in Michigan, true. But check this out: lurking in the depths of Lake Taneycomo are likely some world-record-shattering specimens.
A decade ago, somebody found a dead brown trout there with an estimated
weight of 45 pounds. You know what else weighs 45 pounds? About nine
bricks. Now that's
a fish, friends.
As the ever-perspicuous Jim Low, writing
for Department of Conversation
, put it
Scott Sandusky, the most exciting fish in the world is the Missouri
state-record brown trout he landed Nov. 20. For the rest of us, the
most exciting fish are the even bigger brown trout that might still be
prowling the depths of Lake Taneycomo.
