A Hinsdale man, who dubbed himself "an avid outdoorsman," snagged a 15-pound brown trout while ice fishing on Stockbridge Bowl last Saturday.

Jamie Pollard said he was out ice fishing with his childhood best friend when he caught the trout, which weighed in at a whopping 15 pounds, 13 ounces and measured 32 inches in length. The trout was on the line for 15 minutes before he was able to get a look at it.

"It was a solid 15 minutes before we were able to see the fish swim by the hole and all of us went dead quiet," he said. "It was high anxiety, it felt like a lot longer than it was and that's a long time to be playing a fish but the first time it went by and when we saw its tail its tail measured at 7 inches."
