Congratulations to Elisa Rose of Kellogg for landing this remarkable bluegill. Elisa released the 11.5 inch monster, but landed a new Catch-and-Release State Record in the process. You can find out more about the new Catch-and-Release record program and see a list of all current records at the IDFG website.
Another weekend of ice fishing on Cascade and another state record yellow perch. How can you go 38 years without breaking the record and then break the state record three times in three weeks?

*Note: Idaho Fish and Game has confirmed that this indeed did break the state record set last week. Review all state of Idaho record fish here. And, apparently if you're headed to Cascade lake, you can find the instructions for recording a state record fish.
