Blogs is a state record

September 16, 2014

A goldeye taken from Lake Audubon in July still remains a state record, even though the official weight is about a half pound less than originally reported.
Initially, the weight for the big goldeye, caught by Velva angler Brayden Selzler, was determined as 4 pounds, 12 ounces. After a follow-up investigation, North Dakota Game and Fish Department biologists concluded that the fish officially weighed 4 pounds, 3 ounces.
Selzler’s goldeye still broke the previous state record by 6 ounces.
