FLAMING GORGE RESERVOIR, Utah — While 2020 hasn't been the best year for most, it's been pretty good for an 11-year-old Utah fisherman.

Tyler Grimshaw is getting used to catching fish that are bigger than he is!

Back in June, when he was just a wee lad of 10, Grimshaw caught a 41-pound lake trout at Flaming Gorge reservoir.

But the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says Grimshaw, now 11, topped himself this weekend by catching a 48-pounder in the same location.

Grimshaw caught and released both fish, but it might be time for his parents to buy a bigger boat.
