Fishing

MIchigan angler breaks his own record!

Most anglers never catch a record-breaking fish!  For one Michigan angler he not only broke a record, he just broke his own record from 2008!  Roy Beasley was bowfishing for bigmouth buffalo which is a member of the sucker family when he landed his second state record.  Many anglers are turning to bowfishing as a means of sport fishing.  This is a challenging form of fishing for those looking for a little different form of landing fish.   Suckers are a general target for bowfishing anglers and seems the buffalo mouth is no different.  What a great achievement for this Michigan resident.  I wonder what the odds of winning the lottery are compared to breaking your own state fishing record!  Either way  I would consider him pretty lucky!

“The Michigan Department of Natural Resources recently confirmed a new state-record fish for bigmouth buffalo. This marks the first state-record fish caught in 2017 – and it was caught by an angler who held the previous state record for bigmouth buffalo from 2008.”
