Two Record Breaking Missouri Fish

(Lake of the Ozarks) Two state record fish were caught last week.

The Missouri Department of Conservation confirms Josh Lawmaster of La Russell is the first state-record holder of 2022 after he shot an 8-pound, 5-ounce quillback from Table Rock Lake.

Lawmaster was bowfishing March 15th when he shot the fish.

His fish breaks the previous record of 7-pounds, 10-ounces set in 2015.

The conservation department also congratulates Jim Dain of Pittsfield, Illinois for snagging a monster 140-pound, 10-ounce paddlefish on March 18th at the Lake of the Ozarks.

The fish breaks the previous state record of 140-pounds, 9-ounces set in 2015 on Table Rock Lake.
