West Virginia Record Brooky

This record brook was caught by Brian Wilson, age 19, without a license in Feburary...

This freak of nature is HUGE, but whats even more amazing, this fish has been dining on small children, dogs, and unsuspecting fish for the last few years.... No really, take a look for yourself!!

Your right Sagebrush, definitely not a man eater, but I could see this fish pollishing off a couple small children.

This Brook Trout is sitting around 25 inches and 7.6 pounds, which is enormous, compared to an the average Brook of 10-12 inches and 4-6 pounds.

But even this, WV Record Breaker, couldn't measure up to a Brook Trout caught in 1916 in Nipigon River in Ontario. This heavy weight, pole breaking, man-eater scaled in at 14.5 pounds!

Nice fish, I bet the 19 year old will now buy a license every year for the rest of his life. Wink
