The Ones That Didn't Get Away

Record #:
Of North Carolina's forty freshwater fishing records, ten were set over twenty-five years ago. These include the bluegill at four pounds, five ounces; American (white) shad at seven pounds, fifteen and one-half ounces; and the channel catfish at forty pounds, eight ounces. Scott Van Horn, head of the North Carolina Division of Inland Fisheries' Habitat Conservation Program, discusses why these forty records have stood the test of time.
