RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota might soon have a new state-record lake trout.

Rapid City angler Aaron Jones snagged a fish on Pactola Reservoir after a 45-minute fight Wednesday that weighed 30 pounds at a sporting goods shop and at a state Game, Fish and Parks regional office. Neither had a certified scale, however.

GF&P Regional Fisheries Manager Gene Galinat says the fish probably broke the state record by 1½ pounds. All that's needed now is a certified weight.

Until then, the record still belongs to Steve Matheny, another Rapid City angler. He caught a 28 pound, 5 ounce laker in May 2009.
