Otwin Kandolf said the brown trout he caught recently in New Zealand looked like a submarine because it was so long and abnormally fat. The behemoth, caught in a canal near a salmon farm, weighed 42 pounds, 1 ounce. It?s the heaviest brown trout ever caught in New Zealand and could land Kandolf in the book of world records.

?I just couldn?t believe it. It looked to me like a submarine,? Kandolf told the news station. ?Very ugly, small head, big belly ? Just amazing.?

The Channel 3 News report states that the fish is three pounds short of the world record. However, that trout 3report is erroneous as the International Game Fish Association, which keeps world records, lists a 41-pound, 8-ounce brown trout as the all-tackle world record.

That specimen was pulled from Lake Michigan in 2010.

If Kandolf submits his catch to the IGFA, and it?s approved, Kandolf will be recognized as the world-record holder.

The trout measured 36.6 inches long and 10.6 inches wide. Apparently it got so plump, and heavy, by feeding on pellets that drifted downstream from the salmon farm.

Kandolf plans to have the catch mounted to hang on his wall.
