Minnesota Mixed Bag: DNR certifies nine new record fish

After making changes to the record fish program, the Minnesota DNR has seen steady interest by anglers in documenting their largest catches, as evidenced by the nine new state-record fish the Minnesota DNR has certified since March.
The DNR in March expanded the catch-and-release record category to add additional species, and also made more space for records in the certified weight category by creating a separate category for records established before a certified scale was required to document a fish’s weight in 1980.
