NEW CANADIAN RECORD?


Wayde Richer

Me and my father were bottom fishing with a worm for fresh water drum and panfish when we hooked in to this lunker! Im not 100% sure of the length or girth but I do know it maxxed out my 35lbs scale with ease. We ended up releasing the fish after a couple of pictures and she swam away with power. We later found out that we had probably shattered the old Canadian record of 39lbs.
