Record Year For Nebraska Fishing
Summer fishing has yielded more state records certified by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
Dustin Noble of Gothenburg set the underwater spearfishing record by taking a redear sunfish at a private sandpit in Buffalo County. The fish, taken on Sept. 4, weighed 1 pound, 4 ounces and was 10¾ inches long. That fish broke the record Noble had set on July 3 at the same sandpit - by 2 ounces.
Also on July 3, Noble set the underwater spearfishing record by taking a 13-ounce hybrid sunfish that measured 9.7 inches in length.
Marlyn Wiebelhaus of Wynot set the state archery record on Aug. 12 when he took a 67-pound, 14-ounce grass carp at Buckskin Hills Lake in Dixon County. The fish was 52 inches long.
