State Record Update, Spearing 2019

October 30, 2019 daryl bauer

It has been a while since I have done a state record update.  I usually do an update about this time of year, and usually I have some spearfishing and bowfishing records to report.  This time I only have one. . .

Daniel Nelson of Ogallala took a 1 pound 12 ounce redear sunfish by underwater spearfishing back in June.  That fish was taken from a private pond in Keith County.


Congratulations, Daniel, your state record certificate will be coming in the mail.

As always, the Fishing Guide has all the state record rules and an application form.  You can see a complete listing of all state record fish HERE.

I like to tell a story or two about a “near miss” state record fish, but sorry, I do not have any of them right now either.

I believe that fall is one of the best times of year for catching big specimens of several species.  Looking back through the rod & reel state records, I count thirteen that have been caught in the fall, September through November.  I would consider that proof of big fish in the fall because there are far less anglers on the water then.  Our weather has taken a sudden turn towards cold, but there is still some fall fishing left, and who knows?  There might be a record fish out there waiting for you to catch it!
