A 21-year-old woman from Georgia recently broke a statewide fishing record, officials say.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources announced the new state record in a press release on June 5. St. Marys resident Lauren E. Harden caught a 33-pound crevalle jack on May 24 while fishing on Cumberland Island.

“The previous record of 30 pounds, six ounces was set in 1981 by Ann Allen of St. Simons Island, Ga,” the press release explained. “Harden’s impressive catch was officially verified and recognized by Georgia DNR after evaluation.”

“Representatives from the DNR’s Coastal Resources Division (CRD) certified the weight May 24 at DNR’s Coastal Regional Headquarters in Brunswick,” officials added.
