13 year-old catches Wisconsin state record golden shiner

July 13, 2011 at 01:50 PM

Wisconsin DNR

MADISON - Maxfield JonasKrueger of Madison is Wisconsin’s latest and youngest current state record holder for a fish caught with a hook and line.

JonasKrueger, 13, caught a .30 pound, 9.75 inch golden shiner with a rod and reel on July 7, 2011, at Fowler Lake in Waukesha. His record bested the 8.5-inch, 3.4 oz fish caught in 2009 from Dexter Lake in Wood County by John Kubisiak of Rhinelander.

There have been younger state record fish holders—Troy Schmeling, of Rubicon was 12 years and 3 days when he caught a state record white crappie in December 1995—but that record has since been broken several times.

Anglers who think they or someone they know has caught a fish that might be a state record, there are a number of steps to take:

  Don’t clean or freeze the fish
  Keep the fish cool - preferably on ice
  Get the fish weighed as soon as possible on a certified scale (found in grocery, hardware stores, etc.) and witnessed by an observer.
  Contact the nearest DNR office to get the fish species positively identified and to find out whether the fish is a state record.
  Obtain and complete a record fish application, available online at Wisconsin’s Record Fish .

An official record fish application must accompany all prospective record fish entries.
