That’s officially a big fish.

A fisherman in North Dakota can finally say that he holds the record for catching the largest walleye fish in the state. The announcement was only recently made even though the fish was caught in mid-March.

Jared Shypkoski caught a 16-pound, 6-ounce walleye on March 13th while fishing at Lake Oahe, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department confirmed in a press release. The fish broke the previous record for walleye, which was set in 2018 by a fisherman who reeled in a 15-pound, 13-ounce fish from the Missouri River.

He said, “It’s pretty surreal, still, I guess. I can’t believe it, that’s for sure. It’s been my goal for a lot of years, and I actually didn’t ever think I would achieve it.”
