In New Jersey, a local man just set a new record, according to the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife. Hunter and fisherman, Andrew Cunningham-Moorat shares the exciting news:
On September 30, 2021, Joe Satkowski of New Jersey reeled in quite the catch! Weighing in at a whopping 8 pounds, 10 ounces and measuring in at 26 inches long with a girth of 16.25 inches, the angler is the largest salmon caught in a landlocked lake. The previous record was for an angler that weighed five ounces less than Satkowski’s catch.
Wow! Talk about a great day out on the water! As a hobby fisherman himself, Andrew Cunningham-Moorat certainly has to marvel at Joe Satkowski’s winning combination of luck and lure appeal. Congratulations on the new record!
