I was just told a story about a 97 Pound Catfish caught in an Ohio River Tournament, and the bait was a whole dead chicken. Does anyone know about this? Sounds fishy to me. I wouldn't have thought much of the story, but it came from a Gander Mountain store employee who seemed to have at least a basic knowledge of fishing. All I could find on the internet yesterday was about whole dead chickens as bait for Wels Catfish overseas.
