What does a 30 pound trout look like?  If a Rapid City man has his way, South Dakota may have a new state record for lake trout.

According to the Rapid City Journal, Aaron Jones caught the fish at Pactola Reservoir that weighed in at 30 pounds.  It took Jones 45 minutes to land it. It was weighed at a sporting goods shop and at a state Game Fish & Parks regional office.  Neither scale was certified.

GF&P Regional Fisheries Manager Gene Galinat says the fish probably broke the state record by one and a half pounds.  All that is needed now is a certified weight.

Until that happens, the record still belongs to Steve Matheny, also from Rapid City.  He caught a 28 pound 5 ounce lake trout in May 2009.
