A Wisconsin man may have set a world record by reeling in a huge catch during a fishing contest on Lake Michigan.Roger Hellen was taking part in the Salmon-A-Rama in Racine Friday when he got hold of an enormous brown trout weighing 41 lbs. and 8 ounces.

That's one ounce more than the current world record for brown trout.

Hellen will get the fish weighed on a certified scale and hopes it will be recognized as a world record.
