This is why we fish! Check out the absolutely infectious excitement these two anglers expend when one of them hooks into a monster 40-inch-plus lake trout.
The two men scream “dude” umpteen times, hoot and holler constantly, and almost crack the ice with their girl-at-a-boy-band-concert shrills. It’s like the ice fishing version of double rainbow.
The fish was caught 20 miles out on Lake Superior. The long, cold winter has frozen larger portions of the lake, allowing ice fishermen to target places they’ve never fished before. And, thanks to these forward-thinking anglers, the big laker is still out there.
