Man Catches Record Paddlefish



The paddlefish Andy Belobraydic caught last Saturday looked more like something out of Jurassic Park than a simple lake. At 140 pounds 9 ounces it holds the state record for largest paddlefish caught in Missouri. A native of Murphysboro, Belobraydic caught the monster fish in Table Rock Lake in Richmond. Having already thrown back two paddlefish for being too small, third time was definitely the charm. The fish measured 56 inches long, and 43 inches around.
