Catching a state record fish is a goal of many anglers, and some have even gone as far as to call themselves "record hunters". I have recently been intrigued by this avenue of fishing, and I was wondering if anyone here holds or has held a state or world record in the past. What was it? Were you trying to set the record or was it an accident? Was there any reward for catching the record? What was the process of turning in the record like? Just trying to learn more about this area of fishing.
