World Record Paddlefish Snagging Experience

Adventure Description: 

Anglers have a chance to catch a World Record paddlefish with two-time world record guide Jeremiah Mefford and "Reel Good Time Guide Service." After snagging a 151-pound, 14.4-ounce giant while being guided by Jeremiah Mefford, Angler Cory James Watters holds the current rod-and-reel World Record title. Watters’ paddlefish is just the latest in a string of actual or would-be record-setting paddlefish snagged at Keystone in 2020.

On June 28, James Lukehart of Edmond snagged a world-record-setting 146.7-pound paddlefish, also while fishing with Mefford.

On May 23, Mefford himself hauled in a 143-pound paddlefish at Keystone, setting a new state record but missing the then-world record by just a pound.

On Feb. 14, Justin Hamlin of Kellyville boated a paddlefish that unofficially weighed 157 pounds, but the fish had to be immediately released because it was catch and release day.

All fish caught were release live after official weighing.
