Andrew Plumridge set out on the Housatonic River for his second-ever fishing trip last week. He returned with a 32-pound common carp and a pending ice fishing world record.

Plumridge, 41, hit the river with three buddies and fishing guide Paul Tawczynski on Jan. 31 near Sheffield, Mass., reports the Berkshire Eagle. The group caught just three fish that morning and waited six hours for another bite. But it was worth the wait, and after a 30-minute struggle Plumridge succeeded in landing the giant carp.

“We had that fish to the hole probably 15 times,” Tawczynski told the Berkshire Eagle. “Every time we got close enough to touch it made a run of about 10 to 15 yards. Finally, it got tired and laid down by the hole where I could pull it up. There was absolute elation from everyone on the ice.”
