Two guys broke the Willard bay record.
A 7 pounds 7 ounces, 26 5/8 inches long wiper
caught by Joe Huisu at Willard Bay on July 6 2006 beat the old record by nearly a pound
Then a week later on July 13, John Volt of South Weber hauled in a new record that weighed in at 7 pounds 11 ounces, just four ounces heavier than Huisu’s fish!
RE: Map
Yea Utah is missing from the map Jeff.
Nevada isnt represented either.
New Mexico doesnt stock them but Neighboring Texas does into shared Red Bluff Reservoir.
The book also says California raises hybrids and sell them to Oregon and doesnt stock them in their own lakes but heres an 18.6 pounder caught by Jim Schriver on a jig'n pig at Sierra Cove.
I would have to mess with the map in in fireworks and update it properly. Maybe a project for a rainy day.
