Big Walleye Does Not Qualify as State Record

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has completed an investigation into the 16-pound, 9-ounce walleye taken April 21 from the Heart River, and based on evidence provided, department officials have concluded the fish was foul-hooked, and therefore cannot be recognized as a state record.

To qualify as a state record, a fish must be harvested in accordance with rules for recreational fishing.
