We talked to Steve Schaffer, the guy who shot video of his dad wrestling with a monster lake trout while ice fishing in Canada. If you haven't seen the video, watch it first, then listen to our interview below.

Some things we learned from Steve:

  • They did keep the fish, but donated it to a Canadian research facility.
  • It was estimated at around 40 pounds
  • His video has since gone viral with every country in the world seeing it, and as of Friday a majority of them were from Maine
Check out our interview and hear Steve tell the story of how dad caught the big one!
