Since last months issue of the NH fishing and hunting newspaper "Hawkeye", Nubanusit Lake in Hancock/Nelson NH has gotten a lot of fishing pressure due to the huge Lake Trout being held by a NH fish and Game officer in the picture at the top of the front page. Well, it paid off for Wayne Verill Jr. of Meredith, NH who caught that very fish through the ice on January 16th. The official weight was 24.08 pounds, with a girth of 21 3/4 inches and an overall length of 39 inches. The Laker was caught around noon, using a white Bucktail jig, 24 feet down. Wayne saw the trout suspended on his Vexilar, lowered his jig to the fish and was able to get it to hit. It took about a 1/2 hour to land the big Laker through the ice. The least colorful of the trouts, lakers are light green or grey, dark green, brown or almost black with irregular, lighter colored spots. They have a light underside leading edges of pectoral, pelvic, and anal fins that are reddish-orange with a narrow whitish margin. During the fall spawning season, the fins near the tail become a pale orange.

-Massachusetts State Record is 24 lbs 0 oz caught by Michael Sienkiewicz in 2004 at Wachusett Reservoir
