Walleye Almost Breaks State Record

CEDAR RAPIDS - Cody Mitchell of Cedar Rapids caught an enormous walleye on Thursday that almost broke the state record of 14 pounds.

Mitchell caught the fish near the Five and One Dam. Mitchell says when he caught it the fish weighed in at 17 1/2 pounds, which would have been a new record. But, he took it home, froze it, which caused it to lose weight. It ended up weighing 13 1/2 pounds, close to a new state record.
