Photo of the Week: Lunker on the loose

Staff Writer

Local brown-trout hunter Dan Stewart shows off the 10-lb., 6-oz. brown trout he pulled out of Lower Twin Lake in Bridgeport on May 4, just days after his April 28 11-lb., 2-oz. catch. Both catches, verified by the resort owners, were released into the lake to fight another day. They represent the latest notches on an impressive belt; Stewart has been reeling in the monster trophy browns from Lower Twin for several years. His first was a 12-pounder in 2007, followed by a 14-lb., 14-oz., 33.5-inch brown on Opening Day 2010 and his largest to date, a 17-pounder on May 1, 2013.
