Congratulations to Shane Doherty on breaking the pole and line state-record by catching a 2-pound-2-ounce gizzard shad.



VERNON COUNTY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reports that angler Shane Doherty of Fort Scott, Kansas, set the first fishing state-record of 2016 by catching a 2-pound-2-ounce gizzard shad measuring 19 and 13/16 inches. Doherty caught the fish by pole and line on Jan. 8 at a private strip pit in Vernon County. The previous pole-and-line record for gizzard shad was 1-pound, 14 ounces set in 2015.
