What is the biggest fish you’ve ever caught? A 7-pound largemouth, a 2-pound crappie or a 45-pound blue catfish? While your fish may not have broken a state record, it could very possibly be the biggest fish ever caught out of your favorite lake. The Lake Record fish program was established to recognize big fish and the lakes where they are caught.
Been to the lake lately? You might have caught a lake record!
The Lake Record fish program continues to grow, as more and more anglers find themselves holding a fish that qualifies for a lake record. From lakes large and small, from one side of the state to the other, the Lake Record program recognizes anglers who land a fish that is a record for that lake.
Once an angler catches a fish that might qualify as a lake record, he or she must have the catch certified at a Lake Record Keeper location. For a full list of record keepers, visit our web site, wildlifedepartment.com/fishing.htm
The minimum weights to qualify your catch in the Lake Record program must be larger than a 6-pound largemouth bass; 4-pound smallmouth bass; 2-pound spotted bass; 2-pound crappie; 15-pound channel catfish; 40-pound blue or flathead catfish; 3-pound white bass; 20-pound striped bass; 8-pound hybrid; 5-pound walleye/saugeye; 1-pound sunfish or 40-pound paddlefish.
