Record Yellow Perch Caught in Maine

Martina Drugovich of Ohio was ice fishing for the first time on Mount Desert Island’s Long Pond on Feb. 11 when she landed a new state record yellow perch, which tipped the scales at 2.12 pounds and measured 16 inches.

The catch, if approved, will best the 1.88-pound perch taken by Daniel W. Baty in Damariscotta Lake in 2017.
