At the beginning of October, Hailey Thomas caught and released a rainbow trout/cutthroat trout hybrid measuring 36 inches.
A new state record for the state of Idaho.
Initial estimates placed the weight of the fish at between 17 and 20 pounds.
Its tank measured a whopping 21 inches in circumference.
The Idaho Statesman reports that Thomas and her family went fishing on Henrys Lake but had a disappointing day owing to the murky water.
Thomas' bait (which wasn't described in the story) was taken by the enormous hybrid just before they were about to draw anchor and go.
