It is not often when someone in your family becomes famous. It is even more remote when someone in your family sets a new fishing world record. But it has happened to me. I got a call this past weekend that my cousin, Logan Thomas, had caught an epic fish. Then I found out it was not only epic, but it was a new record. Not just a state record, but a WORLD RECORD. Below is a picture of this new world record grass carp.
This brute weighed in at 79 pounds and was 49 inches long. Included was a 36 inch girth. It was caught in Crescent Lake in Alpha, IL.
He is a high schooler who is very excited…..............who wouldn’t be? He is in negotiations right now to sell the fish to Bass Pro.
AWESOME CATCH LOGAN!!!!
