DNR certifies new state record pumpkinseed fish

OUT-Pumpkinseed-fishThe Department of Natural Resources has certified a 2.15-pound pumpkinseed caught Oct. 26 from Lake Nepessing as a state record.

Deaunti Kemp of Flint was fishing with a leaf worm on the Lapeer County lake when he caught the 12-1/2 inch sunfish. Kemp’s pumpkinseed eclipsed the record of 1.58 pounds, set in June this year from Pickerel Lake in Emmet County.

The pumpkinseed marks the fifth time a state record fish has been caught in 2009. New state benchmarks have also been set for Great Lakes muskellunge, brown trout and redear sunfish.
