(S.D.)-State May Have New Record Trout

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 01/25/2013 08:02 AM

     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota might soon have a new state-record lake trout.
 
     Rapid City angler Aaron Jones snagged a fish on Pactola Reservoir after a 45-minute fight Wednesday that weighed 30 pounds at a sporting goods shop and at a state Game, Fish and Parks regional office. Neither had a certified scale, however.
 
     GF&P Regional Fisheries Manager Gene Galinat says the fish probably broke the state record by 1  1/2 pounds. All that's needed now is a certified weight.
 
     Until then, the record still belongs to Steve Matheny, another Rapid City angler. He caught a 28 pound, 5 ounce laker in May 2009.
