    There you go, now that's a catfish! Since this is her second in this class, maybe she needs to start a trophy fish guide service. Good post,, Jack.

    Thanks for sharing that story Richard and keep them coming. I would almost bet there are some in that range right where you and I fished under the rail road bridge.

    CORRECTION - I was contacted by one of the anglers present when Diane Voss-Wilkins captured her huge catfish Monday. There was apparently an error reading the scale ... it's one of those scales that has a pin that can easily be mistaken for the weight mark. Apparently her monster catfish weighed 70 lbs., rather that the previously-reported 100. As the scale owner points out, "It was still a terrific fish and a great fight!"
