JEFFERSON CITY — A western Missouri man has set his second state fishing record in two years.
The state Conservation Department says 23-year-old Nicholas Wray of Harrisonville caught a 2-pound, 4-ounce black bullhead in early April in a Cass County farm pond. That beat the previous record for a black bullhead caught by jugline by 4 ounces.
Last July, Wray set a state record with a 2-pound, 3-ounce river carpsucker taken by pole and line. Wray caught that fish in the South Grand River.
