As they say, there’s always a bigger fish in the sea. Or, in this particular instance, there’s always a bigger fish in Lake Lehow.

Students from Peiffer Elementary were fishing the small, private lake on Tuesday as part of Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Schools and Outdoors Learning Environments (SOLE) program. A group of fourth graders were left reeling after a giant bass emerged from the murky depths and attempted to gobble up a 12-inch rainbow trout that was affixed to the end of a student’s line. After this jaw-dropping experience, it’s safe to say that these kids are now officially hooked on angling and will be sharing this fish story for years to come.

Due to recent rains, the normally clear water at Lake Lehow looked more like chocolate milk on this particular outing. However, the video below captured this memorable event.
