A man from Kansas was fishing on Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks for opening day of paddlefish fishing season when he landed a new world record paddlefish weighing 164-pounds and 13-ounces.

This massive fish broke the previous world record for paddlefish that was set back in 2021 when angler Grant Rader of Wichita, Kansas landed a 164-pound paddlefish on Keystone Lake in Oklahoma. At the time, that 2021 record broke the previous record which stood at 151 pounds by a whopping 13 pounds.

This new world record paddlefish bests the previous world record by 13 ounces and it also demolished the previous state fishing record which was 140 pounds, according to a press release from the Missouri Department of Conservation. Making this record even more special, it was his FIRST TIME ever going ‘snagging’ for paddlefish.
