Alex Mergen – U R Legendary!

03 May

An unidentified angler stands with the record paddlefish caught by Alex Mergen

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has confirmed that a youth from South Dakota has landed a new, state-record paddlefish.  Alex Mergen, 16, of Rapid City, SD can now claim he’s caught the largest fish in North Dakota.  The paddlefish was confirmed to be at least 130 pounds.  (The rumor is that the Game and Fish scale only goes to 130 pounds.)

The record fish was caught Sunday morning on the Missouri River near Williston.  It reportedly was 74-inches and took 10 minutes to land.  The paddlefish season opened this past weekend and continues through the end of the month.

Congratulations Alex – we think You Are Legendary!!
