Big Walleye Does Not Qualify as State Record

by NDGFD


The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has completed an investigation into the 16-pound, 9-ounce walleye taken April 21 from the Heart River, and based on evidence provided, department officials have concluded the fish was foul-hooked, and therefore cannot be recognized as a state record.

To qualify as a state record, a fish must be harvested in accordance with rules for recreational fishing.

Anglers can visit the Game and Fish website, gf.nd.gov, to see a complete list of state record fish requirements.
