Golden Redhorse record broken

February 10, 2005 - The Illinois River in northeast Oklahoma recently yielded a new state record golden redhorse.

Everett Noblin Jr. took the 7 pound, 8 ounce, fish while gigging Jan. 21 in the Illinois River in Adair County. The fish measured 27.5 inches long and is the new standard in the unrestricted (non rod and line) tackle division.

Golden redhorses are found in the eastern third of the state and inhabit areas with clear, flowing water such as rivers and streams. The fish is a solid gold color and feeds on insects and plant matter along the stream bottoms.

The record was weighed on certified scales at the Jimmy Houston Store. The weighing was witnessed by Gary Peterson, northeast region fisheries biologist for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.

For a complete list of record fish and the procedures regarding state record fish consult the "2005 Oklahoma Fishing Guide." If you think you may have hooked a record fish it is important that you weigh the fish on an Oklahoma State Department of Agriculture certified scale and the weight is verified by a Wildlife Department employee.
