Local guy catches big one at the Gorge

Troy Olson caught this Mac at Flaming Gorge

Troy Olson caught this Mac at Flaming Gorge. It took about 45 minutes to land it but it was so exciting to see that it seemed to take 5 minutes. He was jigging and caught it about 8:30 a.m. on June 11th. It actualy spit up about 5 lbs of fish during the whole process, but was no worse for the wear when he put it back in the water as soon as possible to hopfully give somone else the same thrill another day. Troy says he's never "gonna be ruined for fishing but he'll always long for the feel of this monster." He said it was like hooking a 52 Buick while goin down the road. His arms were so tired it was like he'd just finished lifting weights.
