An Orillia, Ont. angler says he has caught what could be an Ontario record burbot.

On Jan. 25, Sebastien Roy says he was ice fishing on Lake Simcoe with a buddy, looking for some whitefish.

Roy, 32, said the spot they had planned on fishing was open water, so they had to make an adjustment.

“It’s kind of luck as we ended up fishing a spot we usually wouldn’t fish,” he said.
