Fishing

Wait until you see what this record breaking fish weighed!

Don’t all anglers dream of reeling in a record breaking lunker? I have two boys that love to fish and though the fishing tales are usually bigger than the fish, they still hope to catch the big one!  For one Missouri angler, he did just this.  He caught a record breaking fish and you will not believe what it weighed.  His record-breaking sunfish came in at a whopping 1 pound, 5 ounces.  Now this may not sound like a lot to you but that is a big sunfish!

“The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reports Dominik Penner of Merriam Woods Village became the most recent record-breaking angler in Missouri when he caught a redear sunfish on Table Rock Lake. The new “alternative method” record fish caught by Penner on May 14 weighed 1 pound, 5 ounces. Penner’s recent catch broke the previous state record of 1-pound, 1-ounce, caught earlier this year.”
