I don’t believe it for one second.
Well, then you start reading that it happened in New Zealand and then things start to make more sense. You see New Zealand is next to Australia, you know, the giant landmass where all the world’s most horrifying animals, insects, and reptiles live. It only makes sense that this freak of nature trout was caught close to Australia in New Zealand.
Seamus Petrie is the guy’s name who caught this beast. What a name, Seamus! He’s since had the monster trout stuffed and mounted on a wall at a local bar. Here’s the thing, everyone thinks it’s fake because it is so big. The record-breaking trout weighed in at a staggering 44lbs 5oz. That’s the biggest fish I ever saw!
