State Recognizes 22 Anglers for Outstanding 2007 Catches
February 20, 2008 - The Department of Natural Resources has recognized 22 anglers for outstanding fish caught in 2007. One state record was broken and 21 anglers were awarded Fish of the Year honors.
Each year, the DNR tracks the largest fish of more than 50 species caught with hook and line in Indiana.
