Definitely the craziest catch of my life, took me almost ten minutes to get this pig through the ice on my panfish setup. #catchandrelease

This first winner of the all-new Karl’s Catch Of The Week contest goes to John from New York for landing this monster rainbow trout through the ice on a finesse rod built to handle panfish. Catching a hard-fighting rainbow on tackle that light must be nerve-wracking because everything can go wrong with one wrong move. Kudos to John for keeping his cool and playing things out before flopping that behemoth topside. Also, good on him for releasing the trophy-caliber trout back into the lake for someone else to catch.
As a prize, we’re going to hook John a few top-tier trout lures from Karl’s to set him up for the next adventure. To enter the next contest, join the Fishing Free For All Facebook group and share a recent fish catch with the group using the hashtag #KarlsCatch.
We don’t need the GPS coordinates of where you’re catching fish, but details to go along with your picture is an easy way to increase your chances of winning. Things you can include: Fishing depth, lures or rigs used, or a memorable moment from the catch.
