Dave Harrington, a Minnesotan who's been on a 10-year quest to better that state record, caught the record festival fish on Valentine's Day, 1987. The 14 lb. 101/2 oz. eelpout succumbed to a glowing Swedish Pimple that Harrington illuminated with a camera flash. Eelpout fight as well as, if not better than, walleyes, he thinks, and says, "When can you catch 10 walleyes over five pounds? Well, in an evening you can catch 100 pounds of eelpout."
