Seven pound smallmouth bass sets South Dakota record

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE -- A smallmouth bass pulled from Horseshoe Lake in northeastern South Dakota last month is a state record.
The Game, Fish and Parks Department says the 7 pound fish was caught by Derek Valnes of Brandon. It topped the previous record of 6 pounds, 9 ounces. That fish was pulled from Lake Poinsett in 2008.
Valnes' bass was 21 1/2 inches long and had a girth of 18 inches. It marks the 19th time the state record smallmouth bass has been bested.
