Sunday morning, Rebecca saw a large fish swimming near their dock.
She grabbed the fish, and then realizing how big it was, called for a neighbor’s help to get it out of the water.
Neighbors told her she might have a state record catch and to contact Kansas Wildlife and Parks to verify it.
Fisheries biologist John Stein says Rebecca caught a buffalo fish weighing just less than 60 pounds. Stein says it would be a record for the state fishing book, but because Rebecca caught it with a net, it doesn’t count.
Even so, Stein says this fish is one to talk about.
