US: caught a world record size yellow perch
Earlier this week, a 12 yearold girl has just set the world record for largest yellow perch caught while ice fishing in Cascade, Idaho.
Young Tia Wiese went ice fishing with her dad last March at Lake Cascade and landed a giant perch.
Fortunately Tia and her father, had a certified scale to weight the fish. It came in at a whopping 2 pounds 11.68 ounces.
It not only smashed the state record, but her dad learned that it could be an IGFA world rankings.
The previous world record for yellow perch caught ice fishing with was 2 pounds 6 ounces out of Sheep Pond, Mass.
For sure is the largest yellow perch caught while ice fishing using a rod, anywhere in the world.
