I have seen trout eat mice a lot, but it looks like small mammals are the only thing on this trout’s menu.

I know everyone tells you the fish was 100 foot or 3 foot long,, but I have pics somewhere in our storage in an album and even the ones I personally pulled outta ice in January past Kapuskasing were 2 footers. As round almost as the hole. My uncle landed a 45lb Musky up there in a river by total error, a mis throw of a lure some 2 foot from the shoe in a river, and shallow water. It was out on grass in 10 seconds. Surprise. No way it would have been that quick if he hooked it farther and deeper. No way.
