My Mom sent me this clipping from the Mansfield News Journal, dated September 6. The "lake" is a concrete pond located in a public park and, despite having grown up in Mansfield, I've never fished it. However, this beast was returned to the lake unharmed. (Sorry about the upside down pic.)

Seeing how the fella in the pic is holding that monster, lets just hope he really was unharmed.

Nice fish. But a 50+ pound fish, laying flat on the bed of a pick up truck, rarely gets "released unharmed".
My guess is on fish fry.

What? Did he drive it to another part of the lake to release it?:D
Catch fish. Take the waders off. toss 50+ fish up onto the truck bed, and then go release it...
He either fibbed or the reporter got it wrong. Both of which are pretty likely.

He allegedly drove it to the newspaper's headquarters, got the picture taken, and drove it back to the park. If the newspaper is still located in downtown Mansfield, that would be about a five minute drive, one way. (I'm guessing that he did not have a smart phone or a digital camera handy.)I can tell by the background that the picture was not taken at the park. The most apt comparison I can think of for this "lake" would be what's at Westgate Park or Whetstone, which is what makes this catch sort of interesting...

I think it's dead in the truck pic.
Either way, BIG fish for sure.
Yeah, I hate that picture; it bothers me to see suffer out of the water like that...

Sidenote: My brother thinks he might have graduated with that guy...

Any river in the Muskingum watershed should hold them, right? Lower Clearfork, Black Fork, maybe...
