Missouri Department of Conservation has recognized a new hybrid striped bass record that’s just been caught.

Tallying up to the 15th record-breaker of the year, a new hybrid striped bass record has been registered in the state of Missouri. After being caught by Mark McArtor of Camdenton via a jug line, his new hybrid officially became the newest “alternative methods” fish to make the list. 

Weighing in at 9 pounds, 1 ounce with a length of 27 inches, McArtor didn’t quite know what he had. 

“My wife and I are thrilled to have caught a state record fish,” McArtor said in an interview. “I still can’t believe it!”

This newest state record from the Lake of Ozarks came on a shad for bait. McArtor was hoping to catch a blue catfish; however, we all believe this state record fish will suit him just fine. 

Congrats, Mark, on a great fish! Hopefully, you have a few more just like this in your immediate future!
