OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) - An Ottumwa man has broken the state record for the size of a redear sunfish he recently caught.

The state Department of Natural Resources says Jeff Kokemiller caught the fish Sept. 27 while in a kayak in his farm pond in Wapello County.

DNR verified that Kokemiller's fish weighed 2.04 pounds and was a little over 13 inches long. It smashes the previous record of 1 pound, 1 ounce and 11 inches long.

Kokemiller caught the fish with a worm and hook. He plans to have it mounted.
