Elderly Angler Releases Probable World Record Catfish

Postby allingeneral » Sun Feb 03, 2008 7:06 pm

This is an amazing fish. Too bad the old guy couldn't get it in the boat for a full picture! Here's the story:

A TWRA (Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency) Fisheries Biologist recently distributed this e-mail to his counterparts across the state.

"Attached are a couple of photos of a monster blue catfish caught near Greenville, Mississippi by an elderly man who let the fish go after his wife took the pictures. The weight of the catfish is unknown, though some catfish anglers guessed it to be at least 150 pounds. It looks like 200 pounds to me. For sure it would have been a new world record."
