Lake Lamar Bruce Record Bluegill Caught

SALTILLO – A Lake Lamar Bruce record bluegill was caught on June 11, 2017 by Raymond Burns of Baldwyn, MS. The fish weighed 0.57 lbs. Lake Lamar Bruce is a 300-acre state fishing lake located in Saltillo.

“Each state lake maintains a list of record fish, and we encourage anglers to let us know if they believe their catch might be a new record,” said Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) State Lake Coordinator Jerry Brown. Fish that qualify for a state lake record include largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, crappie, and catfish. Potential record fish must be verified by Fisheries Bureau staff.

Anglers who catch a state lake record fish will receive a certificate from MDWFP, and a copy will be displayed at the lake’s office. The record will also be acknowledged on MDWFP’s website.
