Trent Patton writes: this is a lake trout that my father caught in Buffalo Bill Reservoir in Cody on 4/23/2009. It was 42" long 27-1/2" around and 30 pounds 4 oz. He was out on the "Grandpa Bill" (pontoon boat) by himself and had to call on another boat over to help him land it, the net he had was not large enough. The next picture is the fish victory dance. You know his Dad, my
Grandpa Bill (the one the boat was named after) was smiling down on him that day. Far right, this is my Grandfather, Denis Barhaug, with his 34" lake trout he caught on 5/3/2009 on the Buffalo Bill Reservoir. It was 34" long 17-3/4" around and 12 pounds. It was almost lost when it came in and jumped about 3' out of the water at the boat when they tried to net it the first time, but the second attempt was a success. When they brought it in the boat the lure had come out of its mouth and the line had broke 4 inches above the lure. This laker was released back into the lake to get even bigger. Good Job Grandfather, another caught on the "Grandpa Bill" pontoon boat.
