In the late-night darkness of Saturday, Sept. 5, 2009, Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada, resident Sean Konrad boated what is now awaiting certification as the new all-tackle world-record rainbow trout. The fish weighed a staggering 48 pounds, beating the current 43-pound 10-ounce world record (which was caught by his identical twin brother, Adam, in 2007) by 4 pounds 6 ounces. Both fish came from Diefenbaker Lake, in Saskatchewan, Canada.
