Texas Catfish

Post by Partikle » Sun Jan 30, 2005 8:54 am

This is a picture of a catfish that a guy recently caught at Lake Texoma.
According to the news, he was fishing from the shore with a 20 pound test
line. When he realized what a huge fish he had caught, he stayed in the
water with it and kept it close to shore with his hands. He used his cell
phone to call a friend and tell him to bring a scale. The friend got
there and the scale topped out at 100 pounds. They took it to the nearby
Bait shop and weighed it there. It weighed 121 pounds! Luckily a Game
Warden was there and called the Athens Freshwater Fisheries Center and
asked them if they wanted the fish. They sent a 'live truck' to the site
and brought the fish safely to Athens. They are getting it ready for the
public to view. The paper said that it would be two to three weeks before
they'd release into the public tank.. They estimated that the 121 pound
catfish was about 27 years old!

We were circulating that picture around earlier this summerat work. I think the story that accompanied it was that it was caught in Kentucky, or maybe Tennessee.

I'd like to get the link to the real story so me and my buds know exactly WHERE to go fishing!! :lol:

Yep, I also saw that picture months ago. Can't remember the story that went with it. The shorter fella looks like he's got the heavy end :D .
I hunt for memories, the meat's a bonus!
