Justin Hamlin, of Kellyville, had quite the Valentine's Day, Feb. 13. He landed a giant paddlefish while fishing Keystone Lake with Reel Good Time Guide Service. Hamlin snagged the largest paddlefish ever caught in Oklahoma, but it won't go down in the record books. The largest on record was 132.5 pounds, Hamlin's catch was 157 pounds. Hamlin was unable to keep his paddlefish, only take a few pictures and weigh it. To keep the population of paddlefish thriving, Oklahoma has strict regulations on paddlefish and the state law says that anglers can not keep paddlefish on Mondays or Fridays. Because of these regulations, Hamlin was unable to take the fish to a weigh-in location and couldn't put it on a stringer to hold it for the Oklahoma Wildlife fisheries or game warden to come and officially weigh and certify it, therefore, he admired his catch, then released it. To Hamlin this was the catch of a life time.
