Ohio's state record flathead is 76.2lbs caught in clendening lake in 1976 We all know if you catch a record fish it must be weighed on certifed scales. But what if you had no means to keep this fish alive untill it was certified, would you let it die so you can have your name in the record book? Or would you release it with the satisfaction of knowing you caught the record. Personally I would take some pics and tern it loose. What would you do?
