TOOELE, Utah (AP) — A Utah man has set a state spearfishing record.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has announced 39-year-old Jacob Hansen of Tooele broke the state record for spearfishing a tiger muskie fish on June 13 at Fish Lake in southern Utah.
Hansen’s record-breaking fish is 51 inches (about 129 centimeters) long and weighs 32 pounds.
Hansen said he spotted the record-breaking fish while teaching his daughter how to spearfish at a family reunion on Fish Lake. Spearfishing is only allowed in certain areas throughout the state to protect the species.
