Some people may ask ice fishermen why they endure the frozen hands and cold feet, and the video below will probably be in-line with the answer. Camaraderie and appreciation for the outdoors are big draws, but few anglers will refuse a once-in-a-lifetime catch.
The video’s description claims that the fish is 43.75 inches long, which if accurate will place it just behind the world record caught by Bruce Sederberg in Ontario last year. You can read about his 46-inch catch here.
Video includes adult language. Skip forward to 7:30 to see the fish.
