    That sure would be a nice catch. He even released the fish so that is great. His attitude is a good type to spread around the world of catfishing.

    that is a awesome fish but the measurements seem wrong only 34 inches most cats on the miss river that weigh 90 plus are usually 30 plus in girth and about 57 inches long . but that probably is a type o . regardless thanks for sharing and congrads to anyone who catchs one that big

    The James has been producing some big ones. Two guys that I work with went out on sister boat charters last weekend down there. Overall the bite was slow but one boat caught an 86.5 lb blue and the other a 74 lb blue. I saw the pictures, nice fish. Some of the chater captains on the James do not think a 40 lb fish is worth a picture.
