The current World Record Channel Catfish, as recognized by the International Game Fish Association, is a 58 Lb. specimen caught on Lake Marion, SC by W.B. Whaley, in 1964
There has been alot of hype over the record . Some think its a blue and they made a mistake . I have even read were a guy believes it was a large bullhead .
Do you think they will investigate this record a little closer ? If so do you think that they will make a change to this record ?
Finding a Channel Cat over 58 pounds to bust this record is like finding bigfoot .
