OTTAWA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

That’s a whopper of a fish tale.

A Muskegon man now holds a new state record after catching a 46.54-pound black buffalo.

The fish, a member of the sucker family, was caught by Brandonn Kramer on May 25 on the Grand River in Ottawa County.

Kramer got some help bringing in the record holder from his friend, Shawn Grawbarger, also of Muskegon.

The fish measured 39.75 inches and surpassed the previous black buffalo record of 44.54 pounds and 38.5 inches.

That fish was also caught by a Muskegon resident on the Grand River in Ottawa County back in 2015.

State records in Michigan are recognized by weight only.
