It’s been a busy four months in Georgia.
Rachel Harrison caught a 31-pound, 2-ounce longnose gar last week during a trip on the Coosa River near Rome, Georgia. This new fish broke the previous record, which had been nearly ten years ago.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division confirmed that Harrison caught the record-setting fish on March 19.
Chief of Fisheries for the Wildlife Resources Division Scott Robinson said, “Congrats to Rachel Harrison! State records do not get broken every day, so for Georgia to have three new records in this short time span just shows you that our waters are producing great fish right now. Who will catch the next one? It might be you – but you have to get outdoors and Go Fish Georgia!”
