West Virginia angler catches record grass carp

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A West Virginia angler recently caught a state record grass carp in Hardy County. It’s the second record grass carp caught in the last two months.

John Miller of Lost City, W.Va., caught a 54.75-inch, 67.4-pound grass carp on Feb. 18 at Warden Lake, breaking the previous record for length (53.1-inch) recorded by Zach Adkins on Jan. 3, 2020. William Tucker still holds the record for weight with a 71.69-pound grass carp caught at Warden Lake in 2005.

Anglers who believe they may have caught a state record fish should check the current records in the fishing regulations at wvdnr.gov. Procedures for reporting a record catch also are included in the regulations.
