Awesome: 9-yr-old Catches Possible World Record Just By Doing What He Loves

Check this out! A possible world-record catch was submitted to our Trophy Gallery by a proud relative of 9-yr-old Brayden Selzler.

Says submitter Dorothy Jo Selzler:

“The 9-year-old Velva angler reeled in a 4-pound, 12-ounce goldeye from Lake Audubon.
Youth angler Brayden Selzler’s catch on July 25 shattered a state record for goldeye that’s been in the books for 16 years.”

It's a new state record – and most likely a new world record for this 9-yr-old!
It’s a new state record, and most likely a new world record, too!

Pending application and review, Selzler’s catch would surpass the world record of 3 lbs., 13 ozs., currently held by Gary Heuer of South Dakota.

From everybody at Guide Outdoors, a big congrats, Brayden, on a catch of a lifetime!

Sure, it’s a tough act to follow, but if you have a catch you’re impressed with, share it on our Trophy Gallery! It doesn’t have to be a record – if it’s a trophy to you, it’s a trophy to us!
