Missouri fisherman breaks condition record for river carpsucker

Missouri has a further record catch.

On Thursday, the Missouri Office of Conservation (MDC) announced that the major-at any time river carpsucker was reeled in by a local fisherman. 

Steven Henson, of Bonne Terre, Missouri, caught the 3-pound, 14-ounce fish June 1 even though fishing with a pole-and-line on the Mississippi River. 


According to the MDC, the former file for a river carpsucker was two pounds, 3 ounces — in 2008 on the South Grand River.

Henson’s fish is the sixth capture to established a report this year, the section explained.

While typical in the Missouri and Mississippi rivers and their important tributaries, the river carpsucker is “thought of a activity fish, and is almost never taken on hook-and-line,” the MDC reported in its announcement.
