    Brian Hartman of Alexandria Bay eclipsed the 2009 state record walleye by more than 1.5 pounds when he caught an 18-pound, 2-ounce walleye from the St. Lawrence River on May 5 using a swimbait. The fish was 32 inches.


    This is a fish I struggle to catch. And this guy got it in my backyard.
