A fisherman in Michigan broke the state record after catching a massive black buffalo fish.
Brandonn Kramer was bowfishing on the Grand River May 25 around 11:30 p.m. when he hooked the fish, The Detroit News reported.
With help from his friend, Shawn Grawbarger, Kramer was able to reel in the 46.54-pound, 39.75-inch record-breaking catch.
The state’s Department of Natural Resources confirmed the record Thursday on social media.
The previous record was set in 2015 with a black buffalo measuring 44.54 pounds and 38.5 inches, caught in the same area in Ottawa County.
"Might be a good area to try fishing if you're a record seeker," DNR wrote on the Facebook post.
In Michigan, records for fish are set by weight only, and the identification has to be verified by a DNR fisheries biologist.
The fish also need to be weighed on a commercial scale, like those found at a grocery store or meat market, and the business name where it was done must be included in the entry, according to the DNR website.
