I just though it would be interesting to put together a list of the largest catfish ever caught, blues and flatheads, to get an idea of the distribution and a general idea of what is possible. Im more interested in the fish than the methods. A 100lb fish is still a 100lb fish, no matter how it was caught. Blue Catfish (Over 105lbs) 124lbs 2005 Tim Pruitt, Mississippi River near St Louis 121lbs 2004 Cody Mullenix, Lake Texoma (Texas Side) 118lbs 1988 Dan Grider, Lake Texoma, Jug (Oklahoma Side) 117lbs 1964 Azel Goans, Osage River, Missouri, Trotline 116lbs 1995 John Harmon, Mississippi River near West Memphis Arkansas 113lbs 2008 Steve Oudomsouk, San Vincente California 112lbs 1998 Robert Lewis Cumberland River, Tennessee 111lbs 1996 William McKinley, Wheeler Lake Alabama 108lbs 2007 Cary Winchester, Mississippi River near Memphis Note: Used 105lbs to keep the list a manageable size. Flathead Catfish (Over 100lbs) 139lbs 1982 Bruce and Mackey Sayre, Arkansas River Arkansas Snagline 123lbs 1998 Ken Paulie Elk City Lake Kansas 106lbs 1977 C Clubb Wister Lake, Oklahoma, Trotline I know Ive missed some, maybe a bunch. This is off the top of my head, backed by just a little bit of Googling. Part of the reason for putting up the list is to get more input. Ive heard of bigger blues caught commercially, but I couldnt find any verification. If you have information on a fish that should be on the list, please post it up and I will add it. There only thing I ask is that it be verifiable, with a solid weight and either a state certification or multiple witnesses, or other reliable criteria. There are a lot of fish stories out there. I know of several who have caught fish that I personally believe would be on the list . Radish, Virgil Agee, Matt Bingham. These guys did a great thing and released the fish without endangering them to get an accurate weight. If it was a list of fishermen, I would put these guys right at the top, but I just dont know where on the list to put their fish.
