Bowfishing Association of Illinois president Ed Devries sent a note that Sharon Trame shot a Bowfishing Association of America world record for shortnose gar while bowfishing from the shore of Rend Lake.
Well, its a record breaking year for Bowfishing Association of Illinois members. BAI south chapter president Sharon Trame was out bowfishing Rend Lake from the shore when she spotted a good sized gar. Sharon made the shot and then realized she had tied into something big. After getting the fish to shore, sharon brought it in to be weighed on a certified scale and discovered she had just broken the BAA bowfishing world record for shortnose gar.
Sharon and her husband Jerry do a heck of a job promoting bowfishing in the southern part of the state and have taken many people out to shoot their first fish.
Congrats Sharon on this great fish and new world record!
I will try to get more details on weight, etc.
