A Stratford fisherman's catch is 3 lbs. shy of setting a state record.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, 70.5-pound Buffalo Carp was caught by Mathew Schillinger of Stratford.
Schillinger used a bow and arrow at Castle Rock Lake, west of Adams.
The DNR says the fish was weighed on a certified scale and missed the hook and line record by about 3 pounds.
Rough fish can be harvested with a bow and arrow.
