A Bismarck man caught a record-breaking walleye from the the Missouri River near Fox Island Friday. The record hasn't been broken for nearly 60 years.

Neal Leier reeled in 15-pound, 13-ounce walleye, besting the old record by one ounce.

The 32 and one-half inch fish broke the record that was made in 1959 at Wood Lake by Blair Chapman of Minnewaukan.
