There is something special about being able to pull a big fish through the ice, or into the boat. There’s also something to be said about releasing the fish back into the water to be caught another day.

Watch in slow motion as this huge lake trout is released back into the water.

It looks like it’s almost as fun to put the fish back as it was to catch it. Notice I said almost.

Letting a monster lake trout go in slow motion is almost as much fun as catching a monster lake trout. #stewardsonice Recycled Fish
