    Default Lake Trout Video

    A video I put together of the last 4 lake trout that a buddy and I caught this past week on an Alaskan interior lake.

    Awesome. I recently became addicted to lakers through the ice. Was able to find a remote lake this weekend and my wife landed a respectable 27 incher. Now that we are back from our northern getaway trying to figure out lakes within a few hours of the valley to feed the addiction lol.

    Is that how you handle a fish that youre going to release? Fingers in the gills.

    99 percent of the fish I catch ice fishing I release. In certain cases I'll keep a fish if I feel it is not going to survive. As in this case of the laker my wife caught and the fish had the hook swallowed. Yes I could have cut the line. But I didn't. I kept this fish because of plenty of reasons. No it isn't going to waste yes it is the smoker. Lord have mercy a fish was kept

    Don't get me wrong either... I wholeheartedly condone the killing and eating of fish!!

    Wow, that is awesome. Hope to hook into a laker that big someday. Was looking on your web site and you have some other cool videos on there. Would I be too imposing if I asked what software you use to edit/make your videos?

    If you grab the out side part of the gilplate I see no problem with that. People wine about taking bows out of the water for pics. Seems like a guy can't even take a picture of a fish with out some sounding the whambulence alarm

    By the way awesome fish!

    Got no problem with taking photos with fish, I have some my self. Never had to put my fingers in gills though. Plenty of things written about proper fish handling for a photo. Sticking fingers in gills not a good idea.

    I have my own theory on catch and release. I always throw my first fish back. Sometimes it's the only fish I catch and other times it's a real lunker and still it goes back. That said, after the first it's catch and eat.
