Posted 17 January, 2016.

I received a lovely note from Jeanette Harman during the week. Jeanette had visited the Lake Eucumbene website and had noticed that it said the largest trout caught in Lake Eucumbene was a little over 22lbs (10kg).

After chatting with Jeanette, It turns out her dad, Max Harman, was the angler who caught the magnificent trout.

Jeanette was kind enough to send me a copy of the news clipping from the Melbourne Age (dated 26/9/1969) showing Max holding the fish and the story that went with it.

Max's tip? "The biggest fish in the lake are mostly on the move in the hour before dawn". There you go - set the alarm for a pre-dawn start.

Thanks so much Jeanette and congratulations to you Max.
