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.
