MN DNR certified two new state record fish

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has certified two new state record fish so far this fall: in the catch-and-release category, a 58.25-inch muskellunge fish caught on Mille Lacs Lake by Eric Bakke of Princeton; and in the certified weight category, a one pound 12-ounce hybrid sunfish from Green Lake in Kandiyohi County that tied the existing record.
