The fish caught by Heather Litke this spring at Lake Powell was just certified as a record-breaker.
At 44.5 inches the striped bass caught by Litke is now the largest catch-and-release fish caught in Utah history.
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources posted a photo of Litke and her fish saying:
RECORD FISH: Remember the massive striped bass Heather Litke caught earlier this spring? It was just certified as Utah's newest catch-and-release record. At 44.5 inches, this Lake Powell striper was the catch of a lifetime. Congrats, Heather!
