Teenager Breaks Minnesota Fishing Record

An Illinois teenager on a fishing trip to Minnesota has officially broken a state record for what he caught this summer.

Officials with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said 15-year-old Brecken Kobylecky was fishing on Basswood Lake on June 19 when he reeled in a 46 1/4-inch pike.

The DNR took a couple of months to review all of the evidence before awarding Kobylecky the record for the largest catch-and-release pike caught in the state.

The previous record was 45 1/4 inches in 2018.
