The Spring Mack Days are still going on strong on Flathead lake. This year’s event is offering up $225,000 in cash and prizes, and is going through May 17th. You could reel in a tagged laker and possibly score up tp $10,000. It doesnt matter how big your catch is, as long as you catch one, you’re in the tournament. A Canadian angler landed two behemoth lakers over the course of three days. 

According to Wide Open Spaces

On June 12, 2012, Steve Barrons and his guide, Jay Siemens, landed a HUGE 47-inch-long, 30.5-inch girth, approx. 55-pound lake trout out of Saskatchewan’s Wollaston Lake.

Two days later, June 14, Jay Siemens landed a second mammoth laker from Wollaston. This fish went 46 inches in length, 30.5 inches girth, and weighed an estimated 53.5 pounds.

Watch Siemens catch that second behemoth. The mass of these fish is incredible.
