No prob go2fish, I caught my first brook earlier this year and couldnt believe how beautiful they were.  Here is a pic of our biggest fish from yesterday. Jaybee caught this dandy 16 inch brown after I had left, very nice sized fish for area we were fishing.  Thanks for the fun trip Jay

Diesel, you have a great fish there no doubt, but Lake Mich. record is 10.1 Wisconsin is even less.  If you weighed on a certified scale the next day and it was at 12 pounds, you have a record on your hands.  I would look into it further.  You have the mount and length.  There are people that can confirm it for you.  good luck

Fished a few hours with Jaybee on 2 different streams.  Caught 32 fish with pretty even mix of browns and brooks, it was pretty much all brooks in one area, and all browns in the other area.  Rained on us much of the trip, but lots of overhanging trees that protected us.  Spinners in 1/8 ounce and 1/16 ounce.  Got a message and pic from Jaybee as I was just about home that he caught a beautiful 16 inch brown, otherwise most fish were between 7-10 inches.  Fun trip as always, thanks for invite J.

The brook trout was weighted on a certified scale the following day at the taxidermist. The fish was put  in the freezer as soon as I got home from fishing knowing I would be getting mounted.The fish was also caught from a creek that flows into lake Michigan (outlaying waters). I know the length was 22" its on my wall at home. I made a big mistake freezing that night I got home. The thought of a record fish was never on my mind till the taxidermist said if it had not been frozen it would have broke the record.

Sorry for posting anything here!!

World Record Brook Trout from the Nipigon River was 14.5 pounds "31.5 inches long."  I agree that 22 incher should be re-weighed.

Definitely have to weigh that brookie again. I have a 22.5 in on the wall, weighed just over 7lbs. In fact the current state record was caught in the same spot as mine 2wks later. But still congratulations on an awesome fish

I think what constitutes a large fish is relative. In some streams a 9 inch fish is big. If it's a nice fish and you want to have it mounted, go for it.

Well, you have a state record there, then.  Both inland and Lake Michigan (this side) records are about 10 pounds.  Either congrats or remeasure and reweigh.  Nice fish, but not 12 lbs. Sorry.
