JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – A Missouri fisherman is clearing some space on his wall to display his new world record.
“I’ve never mounted anything before,” said Mitchell Dering, of Fairdealing. “I broke the state record for spotted gar a few years ago, but some guy broke the record two years later, so it’s not in the record books anymore, but I’m working on getting me a collection of state records. I guess potentially world records now.”
On Monday, the Missouri Department of Conservation congratulated Dering for shooting the third state record fish recorded this year – a 4-pound brown bullhead. His recent catch also beats the current 3-pound, 4-ounce bow fishing world record.
MDC said the previous state record was 2 pounds, 7 ounces, caught in 1994 at Wappapello Lake.
