Massive Rainbow Trout Caught in New Zealand

After seeing the pictures of this massive rainbow trout, I think I will have to add New Zealand to my fishing bucket list. At first, I thought the fish was a salmon, but I was wrong. WOW! is all I can say.

Fishing Adventures NZ posted the following pictures to their Facebook page.

Barely 10 minutes into the session Emily came right on this absolute horse of a Rainbow, and after an awesome scrap and a few pics he was sent back to get even bigger!

The guide service showed posted a video of the release in the comments that really show the size of this beast.
