Huge congrats to Roland Olah! As for not pursuing the record, there can be multiple reasons. Some states require you to weigh the fish only at certified weigh stations, you can't use your own. There's a huge chance of the fish not making it so it's not worth the risk. Records also draw the attention of bowfishermen. Personally I wouldn't submit any records for that very reason.

Thanks to former Steve Clow, a former State Chair, CT allows potential record carp to be weighed on Certified Scales at the place of capture in the presence of an independent witness.  So no need to kill or transport a fish. 

Roland said he did not want to claim a record but as everyone can see it is a magnificent fish and a dream capture.

Didn't know that, great to see that CAG is doing amazing work all over the place!
