According to Moro Bay State Park, Dale Ledbetter was jigging for crappie early Monday morning, January 31, 2022 when he thought he had hung a catfish. When his wife Judy netted the fish they both scratched their heads. Turns out it was a 7.4 pound walleye.
Paul Butler of Moro Bay State Park said he’s “only seen a couple of these this far south on the Ouachita going on my seventeenth year here, and this is by far the biggest.”
