A massive Lake Trout was reeled in on Lake Superior in Duluth Friday. 

Charter Captain Jordan Korzenowski and angler Steven Gotchie caught the fish, which they said measured 45.5 inches by 30.125 inches.

The fish could have been a record catch, but the fishermen released it before it was weighed.

According the the Minnesota DNR the state record for a Lake Trout is 43 pounds, 8 ounces, which was caught in 1955.
