NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has confirmed a new fishing record catch for spotted gar.

The record is for the largest fish of the species taken by a method other than rod and reel.

The agency said Jim Ulerick of Kokomo, Ind., took a 12-pound gar by bow and arrow in Reelfoot Lake on April 14. The gar was 39 1/2 inches long. The old record, also on Reelfoot, was 10 pounds, 8 ounces from April 2009.

Reelfoot is a shallow 15,000-acre lake in Tennessee's northwest corner.
