Andrew Peffly went long-lining on July 8, trolling for crappies with 10-, 12-, 14-, and 16-foot rods. He goes long-lining for fun, often with family and friends. When serious, he goes single pole with forward-facing electronics.
At the end of the day, little did Peffly know that he would be the latest fish record-holder in Ohio.
