Jason Pizzarusso (and his son Jakob) brought in the "New Lake Record For Catfish." Official weight of 29lbs 2oz. Previous record was 28lb 12oz. The fish was caught with 4lb line and a 2lb leader with hatchery brown power bait just south of the buoy line. He fought with the fish for over 30 minutes and quickly brought it to us to weigh. After the weigh in and numerous photos, he decided to release the large fish for someone else to catch in the future. Congrats to the both of them!
