Shortest fish record ever?

  • ##Tim Hill of Lancaster reigns as the state recordholder for a grass carp taken by alternate methods with the 40-3/4 inch, 39 pound grass carp he shot Aug. 5 using a bow and arrow from the Mississippi River in Grant County. His record erased the previous record, set just 2 1/2 hours earlier from the same river in the same county by Michael Mahnke of Waukesha.
  • ##Now, Michael Mahnke, pictured here with the 38-1/4 inch, 34 pound, 7.2 ounce grass carp he shot Aug. 5 from the Mississippi River in Grant County, can claim the shortest duration fish record ever in Wisconsin. He owned the crown for 2.5 hours. Submitted photo.
  • ##Noah Renner of Mauston shot a 54-1/2 inch, 22 pound 12.8 ounce longnose gar on Aug. 4 from the Mississippi River in Vernon County and broke the previous record by over three pounds. Submitted photo.
