Dubious Black Buffalo record

Disheartening to read the account of the valiant battle between man (apparently it was actually two men) and fish as this "angler" reeled in the giant "sucker fish" while bowfishing.

 

A Muskegon man has reeled in a massive black buffalo fish, breaking state records this week. 

At 11:30 p.m. on May 25, Brandonn Kramer was bowfishing on the Grand River in Ottawa County when he played tug-of-war with a large black buffalo on his line.

With some assistance from his friend, Shawn Grawbarger – also from Muskegon – the angler bagged his 46.54-pound, 39.75-inch sucker fish.

hmmm...  most States don't

hmmm...  most States don't allow artificial light as an attractant!!!

so, how exactly did the SOB manage this at 11:30 PM ???

P.E.T.A. sucks!!!  Plants are living things, too -- they're just easier to catch!

And welcome to Michigan...

As far as I can tell Michigan does not ban usage of lights for fish attractant, although we can’t dropshot in rivers  , and the lengths at which the regs go on some waters to prevent snagging instruments from being called lures is extensive (which is good but seems like if they would bother with this there would be no using lights). Gaff hooks are fair game in much of the state which seems really unnecessary. But I suppose every state has its quirks.
