New record brook trout caught in Adirondacks

State officials say a Forestport man named Dan Germain has set a new official record for landing a whopper brook trout in New York waters.

Germain was fishing June 15th in South Lake in Herkimer County in the southwest Adirondacks when he took the fish on a Lake Clear Wabbler and a worm.

The trout measured 22 inches and weighed five pounds, 8 ounces, beating the 2009 record by 3.5 ounces.  That’s quite a brookie.

    I’ve trolled a gold/silver Lake Clear Wobbler and worm for years and many miles but have only caught one fish with it. Maybe I need a larger assortment of colors and sizes. Off to the tackle store…………

    Bret, I run the worm with a single hook on a 4lb leader 8-12″ back. The guy who had the recent record caught his brookie trolling a Rapala with a drop weight. Yes, it would be interesting to hear more info on this one.
