A letter to the PA Fish & Boat Commission

To whom it may concern,

I was recently reviewing the “Biggest Fish Caught in Pennsylvania” (2012) page on your website. Among the list of largest catches reported last year, I noticed something quite curious.


Angler: Zachory Boozel     Water: Lake Arthur

This got me wondering which route a marine striped bass would take from the ocean to Lake Arthur, since as I figure it the two are separated by at least 300 miles and countless impassable dams. That’s quite a journey!

I look forward to your explanation.

Thanks for your attention in this matter, tight lines, etc.

    The fish was incorrectly listed. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, we’re making the change to the website listing.
