GREAT VIDEO Escape crew. That is what it is all about !!!!!!!!! I am pulling for you guy,s to take top prize, as well as EVERY other person in the Lake trout division is also.

And i will admit that the screaming was a little louder on the North side of the bedroom windows than was on the south side this derby season off my house. Keep it up & I will man the Shoreline Batteries/ DUCK BLINDS early.

I see that somebody bumped it from the top...nice run though! I finally watched the video and fell out of my chair laughing at you guys. Or maybe with you guys ;)

We knew it was going to happen sooner or later. There are too many BIG kings and too many skilled fishermen for that fish to hold the top spot until the end. $20,000.00 would have been nice but the memories made that day are worth every penny. The video is funny but the thrill of seeing a fish of a lifetime will make anyone scream like a school girl. :lol:

Great fish ,It's still a money fish. I don't see your fish being beat for 1st place in that div.

It was a good run but as Brian said we didnt expect to hold it just hoped, Big O is just to good of a fishery to let a 34lber stay on top. I have laughed my arse off several times watching the video.

When i first saw this fish on the board I was pretty sure it was going to get beat by multiple fish in the salmon class. Pretty surprise that only one salmon beat it. Nice job on a great laker. I wonder if this is the biggest laker ever registered in the LOC.

There is still a pic of it on the wall at East Fork Marina of Dave Chillson and the fish.

It is the 2nd biggest Laker weighed in to the LOC, biggest laker ever weighed in the Orleans County Rotary Derby and the only trout to ever win the Orleans County Rotary Derby. If you guys think lake trout smell bad after sitting in the cooler for a day, you should smell one that has sat in a cooler for a day, then frozen, then thawed for another day. I do not think the smell will ever come out of my cooler! :D

For those of you that were inquiring about the age of this fish, the DEC finally got back to me with an age on this lake trout.  It was 27 years old.
