Feb. 10, 2017 – Senior Hae Kim and master’s student Jason Emmel are not only fishing buddies and fellow fish conservation students; they have traded the Virginia record for the largest carp captured using bow and arrow. Kim first took the record with a catch of 26 pounds, 3 ounces in July, shortly after the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries started recognizing record fish captured with bow and arrow. Emmel returned with a 33-pound catch in October. Later during the same outing, they noticed a behemoth lurking near their boat and agreed to fire their bows in unison. Kim’s shot hit the mark, bringing in a new record of 45 pounds, 7 ounces. Congratulations Hae! Read more...
