Got into the office this morning and found documentation for another state record fish.  This was another notable catch, a big fish, a big popular sport fish!

For years I have been saying that if our rod & reel record for hybrid striped bass, wiper, was ever going to fall, it was going to come from Lake McConaughy.

It did!

Tou Kong Yang from Colorado caught this beauty yesterday!

That fish weighed in at 21 pounds 9 ounces, beating the old rod & reel state record by a pound and a half!  It was 36 inches long.

It was caught on a swimbait–a great bait for big predator fish!

Congratulations, Tou!
