A western Missouri man has caught a record 5-pound, 6-ounce carpsucker, giving him his third state record fish.

The Department of Conservation says Nicholas Wray, of
Harrisonville, caught the lunker on a trotline last month on the
South Grand River in Cass County.

Missouri keeps state records for fish caught by pole and line
and through alternative methods. Wray also holds the record for a
carpsucker caught on a pole and line, thanks to a 2-pound, 3-ounce
carpsucker he landed in 2008 about 100 yards from where he made
last month's record catch.

Wray holds a third state record for a 2-pound, 4-ounce black
bullhead he caught in 2010 on a jug line.

Wray estimates he fishes about 200 days each year, going out
most nights after work.
