A Valparaiso man set an Indiana fishing record in a recent outing on Lake Michigan, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
On Dec. 30 on Lake Michigan in Porter County, Scott Skafar first caught a 10.2-pound burbot that beat Indiana’s 1990 record by 2.5 pounds, the department says.
That same day, he caught another burbot that bested the 1990 record by nearly 2 pounds.
Usually, burbots stay deep in the lake, but can be caught from November to April when water temperatures cool down.
