You think it would be much worse than the other fish?

Very glad he let it go back in the water. They should give this guy the new record.

It shows the amount and types of toxins found in blood/flesh etc. To the poster asking if it would be worse than other fish, the answer is likely yes. Many toxins never leave a fish no matter how long they are there (like chlordane) . If you, or a fish, gets a milligram of chlordane in the system it will still be there 20 years later. The more you or a fish are exposed to, the more you have in you until you finally get cancer. Many toxins build up in the fatty/oily tissues, and lakers have a ton of that and also live a long time. That is likely a very old fish. Not all toxins build up, many are constantly being flushed, so it would depend on pollutants present in that area. That is a monster!

Mercury accumulates in muscle tissues. So cutting out the belly section won't help you with that one.

Lake superior is a big lake... Ya think there is one bigger in there. Or how big is #2...
 
08/16/2019 08:06PM
Definitely bigger fish, lots bigger. There’s got to be some 100 pounders in there.

walllee: "Definitely bigger fish, lots bigger. There’s got to be some 100 pounders in there. " +1 , with ontario and michigan having more water , without looking i'm sure there lake trout record is larger.

Awesome. Good on 'em for releasing it! They should have a catch and release category.
