Douglas Fisherman Breaks Wyo. Gizzard Shad Record

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A fisherman from Douglas has broken the state record for Wyoming’s biggest gizzard shad.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says Jeff Kirk caught the fish while jigging with an artificial lure in Glendo Reservoir.

Kirk says he thought the fish was a freshwater drum at first. He says he realized it was a gizzard shad after he got the fish home.

The gizzard shad weighed an even 2 pounds and was 17 inches long.

Gizzard shad are periodically stocked in Glendo as food fish for other species including walleye. The world record gizzard shad weighed 4 pounds, 12 ounces, and was caught in South Dakota in 2006.
