It’s Fishing season
How about a few state records to make you feel better about yours
Could you get the sarcasm there. We all have had that one fish, bigger then the rest. How do they stack up against the Minnesota State Records.
Largemouth Bass was 23 1/2 inches and weighed 8lbs 15 ozs. That is a HUGE bass.
Smallmouth was 8 lbs. The length was not known
The Common Carp was 42 inches and weighed 55 lbs 5 ozs. I have caught a few big carp in my day, but they look small compared to that
Brown Trout was 31 3/8 inches
Brook Trout was 21 inches
Walleye was 35 3/4 inches and weighed 17 pounds.
So the next time you head out fishing, and you catch a monster, remember these records. You can head to the Minnesota DNR website and even register your fish as long as it is a record.
But have a look, and get those boats out. You never know when that bite will happen.
