Friday the 13th proved to be a lucky day on the lower Kaskaskia for Derek Mueth of Padderborn. Not only did Mueth take a pending state record bighead carp weighing 71 pounds, he quickly followed up with a pending state record silver, at 33 pounds. Mueth also arrowed a 47 pound “yellow” bighead. Bowfishing records are being broken in both Illinois and Missouri at a pretty good clip this spring!
All fish weights were verified and witnessed via a USDA certified scale as required by IDNR .
Congrats to Derek on such a lucky Friday the 13th!
