The award is for meeting the minimum requirements of the Massachusetts FW Sport Fishing program. And yes the fish were caught in MA.
Here's the link.
Sure we can fish together. Here's a picture to give you some perspective. That fish is laying next to my 9x9 saltwater outfit.
Unfortunately had I known about these records way back when I could have shattered the current state record for a Chain Pickeral x2. When I was about 10 caught one that was just shy of 40" and built like a tank. It wrapped around a 5 gallon pail 4 times and it's head still stuck out. After several days of watching it snag baby ducks I casted into it's lair and landed it on a daredevil. Oh well!
