Massive Paddlefish Caught At Keystone Lake

Posted at 9:10 AM, Feb 19, 2020

This next story is a whale of tale after someone caught a 157 pound Paddlefish in Keystone Lake.

The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation posted this picture of the Behemoth Fish on their Facebook page.

The fish was caught last Friday by Justin Hamlin and it would have set a new state record, beating the current record of 132 pounds.

But as it turns out, all Paddlefish snagged on Mondays and Fridays must be released immediately to help protect them from over harvest.

So that fish is still out there for someone to catch it again.
