Kuna man bags state record carp from C.J. Strike


NAMPA, Idaho (AP) _ Idaho Fish and Game officials say a Kuna man's 67-pound carp pulled from the C.J. Strike Reservoir is the biggest on record.
Scott Frazier bagged the fish Saturday using a bow and arrow.
The fish measured 47 inches long and weighed in at 67.65 pounds, crushing the previous state record by nearly 20 pounds.
Frazier and his friend Brian Pokorney were taking part in the Idaho Bow Fishing Association's two-day championship tournament at the reservoir near Mountain Home.
Frazier says he spotted the fish about five feet below the surface before letting fly his arrow. The fish was certified by fish and game officials in Nampa Monday.
It's been a busy week for snapping fish records in Idaho. Last
weekend, a Pocatello man set the new record for lake trout.
