How many state records do you hold? If you’re like me, it’s exactly zero. But for one Missouri man, catching state record fish is becoming downright commonplace.

From this story on
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.

If you want to catch multiple record fish, you’re going to have to give up your television, because according to the story, Wray manages to get on the water about 200 days a year by mainly fishing nights after he gets off work. How many days a year do you find yourself on the water?
