HARRISON, OH (FOX19) - A man catches a very big fish at a Hamilton County park.

Lars Menefee and his wife, Jill, caught an 80 pound paddlefish at Campbell Lakes in Harrison.

Hamilton County Parks says the fish was 6' long and was about 70-years-old.

Paddlefish are one of the largest freshwater fish in America and are endangered in Ohio.

This fish was immediately released back in the lake after it was caught.
