Record Quillback Caught in Taneycomo

thumb_df352de9fd09954JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Conservation congratulates David Weaver of Strafford on his new state-record quillback caught from LakeTaneycomo by bowfishing on Aug. 23.

The 7-pound-10-ounce fish qualifies for a state record in the alternative method category.

The previous record of 6 pounds, 10 ounces was set this spring at Bull Shoals. The new state record is larger than the current world record by more than a pound, but does not qualify because world records only recognize fish taken by pole and line.
