Two new state record fish certified

Two new state record fish were caught in May. A new state record a Bigmouth Buffalo weighing 43.0 pounds was shot by bow angler Josh Bowmar of Westerville in Hoover Reservoir in Delaware County. Bowmar arrowed his 43.5-inch-long fish May 21, which replaces the previous state record Buffalo Sucker which was shot in Lake Erie by Brent McGlone on October 11, 2013 weighing 40.80 pounds and measuring 40.5 inches long.

And a new Ohio record Green Sunfish caught May 13 by a nine year-old angler has been certified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio State Record Fish Committee. The new state record Green Sunfish, weighing 1.20 pounds, was caught by SueAnn Newswanger of Shiloh from a Richland County farm pond. Miss Newswanger’s sunfish measured 11inches long and 10.5 inches in girth. Her catch replaces the previous state record Green Sunfish which was caught in a farm pond by Timothy C. Hively on May 8, 2005, weighing 0.99 pounds and measuring 10-5/8 inches long.

Ohio’s record fish are determined on the basis of weight only and are certified by the Outdoor Writers of Ohio State Record Fish Committee with assistance from fisheries biologists with the Ohio Division of Wildlife.
