Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

Definitely a huge fish. I don’t know if it was snagged or not but there are a couple videos that look like a hook being removed from the back of the fish. Kind of tough to tell for sure from the videos though. If you go to the ND game and fish Facebook page you can find them.

Volk, a community prevention specialist for the state Department of Human Services and also a member of the Lincoln city council, asked to put to rest a rumor that he snagged the fish. He hooked the fish in the mouth, he said, and it wrapped itself in line as it fought. The mouth hook was certified by Game and Fish, Volk said. A snagged fish would not count as a record.

Guess we'll just wait and see if it gets verified as the state record.  If it does, case settled.  If not, then we'll know it was not caught legally.

Here is the Facebook post. You’ll have to scroll through the comments to find the video. I don’t know if it was snagged or not. The hook very easily could have come out of the mouth in the net and the fish rolled into it.

I understand it was certified. I simply stated that I saw a video that shows what looks to be a hook in the back of the fish. And then you asked where this video was at so I posted the link to the video. It doesn’t matter to me if it was snagged or not.

The ND Game & Fish is investigating the issue of it being snagged.  This is according to the Bismarck Tribune.

 

I'm not saying it was snagged.  And no one would try to snag one with a single jigged hook.  However, the fish could have missed the jig, he set the hook, and then it was hooked outside the mouth.  If that is the case, it would prohibit it from being a state record.

Its from a week ago.  The forum won't allow me to post the link of the website.  Maybe there is already something more recent on it.

Looks like it will not count even though the angler claims it was a legal catch. I don’t know what to think on this. I don’t know the guy and I really have to trust the game & fish departments findings.

Big Walleye Does Not Qualify as State Record

 

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has completed an investigation into the 16-pound, 9-ounce walleye taken April 21 from the Heart River, and based on evidence provided, department officials have concluded the fish was foul-hooked, and therefore cannot be recognized as a state record.

 

To qualify as a state record, a fish must be harvested in accordance with rules for recreational fishing.

Anglers can visit the Game and Fish website, gf.nd.gov, to see a complete list of state record fish requirements.
