New State Record Walleye for James Zimmerman

Sun, March 11, 2012


  Fish caught on the Pecatonica River near S. Beloit Illinois

              The Illinois Department of Natural
              Resources (IDNR) Division of Fisheries has officially
              certified the catch of a new state-record walleye ­
              the second time the state record has been established
              this year.

              On Sunday, March 11, 52 year old James Zimmerman of
              Beloit, Wisconsin caught a 15.08 pound walleye on the
              Pecatonica River in Winnebago County.  The fish was
              measured at 31 and 1/2 inches with a girth of 20 and
              3/8 inches.  IDNR Division of Fisheries Regional
              Administrator Dan Sallee certified the new record
              walleye on March 12.  IDNR Conservation Police
              Officer Dennis Frichtl assisted in the weigh-in and
              certification.

              Zimmerman caught the fish on a 1/8 ounce Northland
              Fire-Ball jig.

              15 year old Nick Tassoni of Rockford caught a 14
              pound, 12 ounce walleye on January 7, 2012 on the
              Pecatonica River between Rockton and Harrison in
              Winnebago County that eclipsed the former state
              record 14-pound walleye caught on the Kankakee River
              in 1961.
