I just found saw a photo of the  43.6 pound "World Record Rainbow Trout" replica and it looks very nice. What a giant!  Done by "Rick's Trophy Mounts".  Anybody know who this is?  I wonder if he ever gets on this forum.  You can see this fish and other big trout mounts at  www.trophytroutguide.com

If I'm not mistaken Josh, this picture has been posted in a previous thread about a year ago.
You may be able to find it in the archives...if interested. Splake or Brookie ?

Love that rainbow replica!

Josh yeah the brook trout potenial record looks like a splake to me too (second picture), but we will never know as the guy patted himself on the back for releasing it.  ::) Hopefully if it was a new world record it didn't go to the bottom and die.

Here's the thread where we discussed it with more pics.

I was talking with the trout dock where the large borwn trout from Arkansas (I posted a while back) was weighed it weighed 27 lbs not 39lbs, the man fromt eh dock agreed it was a very odd colored brown. The taxidermist said it weight and measure just like other high weight 20's. Funny how some guides inflate their ego with big fish they had nothing to do with.

It looks like a brookie to me Ive mounted them up to 9 pounds and those bigger fish take on their own characteristics and vary from stream to stream and lake to lake- the other is surely an arctic char

 Looks more like a Brook Trout than an Arctic Char, well to me anyway. Do Artic Char have red spots with blue halos, mixed in among their yellow spots?

She? That's definitely a male.


The thing that gets me is not only is there a chance he killed the fish but a fish in this size class has got to be up there in years near it's last leg anyway.  So he may have just let it die of old age. Sounds almost like PETA doesn't it?

Which one are you talking about? The top one looks like a char to me. Where are the vermiuclations among other things?

The top one. I see a few brook trout every season where the vermiculations are not very prominent. I would like someone to show me a picture of an arctic char that resembles that top fish.

Paul,

I have to concur with you: it looks more like a brook trout to me as well. I've never actually seen a live brook trout, but I have seen quite a few spawning char. Some things that look out of place to me as well (to be a char) are: some very light vermiculations can be seen on the back and dorsal fin (or so it seems to me) and the distinct black at the bottom of the orange on the belly.

I have a few photos that show spawning char from SW Alaska, courtesy of a fish biologist friend. I will post those for comparison.
