This Massive Sheepshead Just Broke The NY Record

Amelia Whalen was out fishing on June 4 at Lake Champlain in Essex County, NY when BOOM – the 12 year old avid angler hooks a massive freshwater drum that went 29 pounds 14 ounces, breaking the previous state record set in 2014 by more than 3 pounds.

Amelia caught the beast on a Lazer Blade worked off the bottom – we reckon she is going to remember this session for a long time!
