Three fish entered in the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department state record fish program during 2013 qualified as new all-time state records.
Vermont state record fish caught in 2013 include:
Fallfish – 3 lbs. 1 oz. – caught in Otter Creek by Robert Scarborough of Brandon, VT.
Freshwater Drum – 21 lbs 11 oz. – caught in Otter Creek by Aaron Schondube of Vergennes, VT.
Carp – 42 lbs. 8 ozs. – taken while bow fishing in the Connecticut River by Jeremy Ballantine, West Dover, VT.
Fisheries biologist Shawn Good, who administers the record fish program, says a recent trend in record-breaking catches are a testament to the great quality and diversity of fishing opportunities that are available to anglers in Vermont.
