MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The story may sound a little fishy. Okay, actually it sounds incredibly fishy, but in the good way. The potentially record-breaking way.

Will Spychalla and Carlyn Salmela caught a monster sturgeon in the St. Croix River on New Year’s Day.

The fish could break a state record.

The sturgeon was estimated to be 75 inches in length and weighed in at 115 pounds. The current Minnesota record is 70 inches and a little more than 94 pounds.

The sturgeon was reportedly released back through the ice, as it’s not currently in season.
