Mike Mott Nevada Rainbow Trout Record

Mike Mott is the fisherman who just broke the Nevada rainbow trout record. While most fishermen will say you don't have to be a rocket scientist to catch a fish, well I guess it takes one to break a 39 year old record.

See Mike Mott is a rocket scientist, but he's a fisherman in his spare time too.

This rainbow trout you see Mott holding up weighs 16 pounds 8 ounces, the fish is 30 1/2 inches long. The girth on the record rainbow trout is about 20 inches.

The previous Nevada state record caught by Mike Soskin weighed 16 pounds, 4 ounces and measured 31 1⁄2 inches long. Mike Mott record rainbow trout beat Soskin's rainbow trout by 4 ounces.

But Soskin's rainbow trout is longer, strange how things work out sometimes huh?

When it comes to World and State records, IGFA goes by weight not by length!

Thank God for Mike Mott's case, sure is a beautiful rainbow trout. I always thought rainbow trout was one of the most beautiful fish on the planet.
