"Look at that !!#$%&!! big fish! It's bigger than a #$@&#%' whale!"" 

Sorry mom. This video is a little sweary. It's definitely NSFW. But you've gotta admit, that is one huge bleeping trout. Just look at the size of that bleeper. Right?!! Bleeping bleep!

Sure, you've heard epic tales about the phenomenal fishing in the remote corners of the Northwest Territories. And believe it or not, they aren't exaggerated. But this video wasn't taken at a fishing lodge or out on Great Bear Lake. No, it was shot a mere 20-minute drive out of Yellowknife on the Ingraham Trail, a road that winds around a network of lakes that locals refer to as cabin country. As the guy holding the camera says, "And we are in Prosperous Lake right now. We aren't in the East Arm." Northwest Territories lakes are positively teeming with lunkers like this. It's the best bleeping fishing destination you could ever dream of.

Oh, and the best part? At 1:45, the guy says, "This just made up for friggin' Alaska." That's right, fishing in the Northwest Territories is the bleeping best.
