New York has it’s second state record fish caught in 2021. On August 21st after catching several large crappie from Sleepy Hollow Lake in Greene County, Roy Isaac’s persistence paid off when he hooked into a 19 inch, 4 lb. 7 oz. white crappie using a live minnow.
The new record breaks the previous state record tie by 10 oz.
Roy entered his state record entry as part of New York’s Angler Achievement Awards Program, which recognizes anglers that catch sizable sport fish in three categories – Catch & Release, Annual Award (kept fish), and State Record.
