It just makes me wonder .....
When was the lake last stocked with tiger trout.
Since tiger trout are a hybrid .

The tiger trout is an artificially produced sterile hybrid that is produced from crossing a male brown trout with a female brook trout.  Hybridization can occur naturally, however it is very rare. Tiger trout have pronounced dark vermiculations (tiger stripes, like brook trout) all over a brownish, gray body.Average 10-16 inches. Tiger trout can grow up to 20 inches and five pounds in quality populations.

Anyway absolute giant.
And congrats to the guy ,I bet that was epic to pull that one in.

Yeah I read another article that said " For the sake of comparison, the all-tackle world record stands at 20 pounds, 13 ounces. That tiger trout was caught in Wisconsin at Lake Michigan in 1978. " So that tells me he just caught the new world record correct?

Itís actually a brown female with a brook male for what it is worth.  I know them very well....it is stocked every year.  That is a monster.....probably on light gear too.  Good fisherman there.....

The portion of my post male and female was right off the WDFW website ,so you'll have to talk to them about how they produce a tiger trout. :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:
But it wouldn't surprise me if your right and there wrong.

Click on link,then click on description and range.

https://wdfw.wa.gov/species-habitats/species/salmo-trutta-x-salvelinus-fontinalis#desc-range

Also I did go to the fish stocking archive.
It only goes back 5 years ,The only fish that they  report they stocked in the last 5 years are rainbow trout.
So they stock it with tiger don't report it.
It's a wild tiger trout or they stocked it with tiger many years ago.
But anyway here is a link to back years of stocking reports.
Feel free to look for yourself.

That's interesting. Makes me think that fish was stocked many years ago and could be as old as ten years. A friend of mine caught an enormous brown out of Wenas lake back in highschool that had to have been pretty old.

Huntin4six is pretty knowledgeable on the subject.
And those stocking reports are for catchable trout.
Not fry trout or smaller plants.
With that said .....
I do agree that whopper of a tiger has to be old.
Makes me wonder if it taste good or not.

I bet that fish was loaded with fat and tasted great after having a long life in a natural body of water and not a holding pond.

It probably had a steady diet of bluegills and kokanee.
But then again there are mac's in loon also that are dining on them also.

It is possible and definitely has me curious.  In most of my experience, smaller fish tend to eat better than larger ones.  I also don't think of fish fat being what I want like I do beef, but I could also be way off. Definitely never caught a trout nearly this size   :dunno:

What a pig of a fish!

I love fishing Loon Lake. You can be fishing for Kokes, and catch darn near anything.
I caught my first Large Mouth there while trolling Koke gear. 8lb 12oz. Caught on a Double Wammy with night crawler trailer.
Amazing fish!

Am I the only one who see's this as the world record and not just the state record!? There's never been a tiger trout recorded over twenty pounds before this fish. IGFA all tackle record is 20lbs 13oz, Lake Michigan, Wisconsin, USA
12-Aug-1978. So this beats that right? I believe all tackle means any line size any rod and reel.

You should try eating salmon or steelhead sometime. Loaded with fat and great meat.
