Yeah, it was in the Wichita paper.
It will be interesting to see what happens.
He almost screwed himself if it is in fact a channel.:smile2:
Here is the thing I question. Are the 110% sure the samples are being taking from the right carcass, since they were just pitched out and then dragged off.
Basically they said that they can't do DNA testing now. The only remains are fillets, which can't be positively tied to the fish.
I guess if you are going to kill a record fish, it's best to preserve it intact:sad2: in which case they could probably bust you for wanton waste :sad2:
Actually that link is a slightly different version of what i read a few days ago. I guess they did find a rotten carcass to test :roll_eyes:
Those seeking a record often freeze the fish whole especially when there is
some question as to what species they have caught. I guess the fellah just
figured that an expert had seen it so it was alright to prepare it to eat.
I think someone should take that little dog that found the carcass out to
lunch for his trouble. He probably had to take it from a big ol' coon.
I was just about to post a new thread about that! Haha, interesting to say the least. The paper here said his dog found the carcass.... how do they know that carcass is the one of the same fish? If the dog found it, well I know what my dog would do to it.... I'm sure it wasn't a whole carcass. Might be tough to positively identify it if my dog got ahold of it.
Another ks record catfish controversy. You would think that this would be simple and straight forward, but their seems to always be something. Now if this guy gets the record everyone will be sceptical.
I think i've caught a few of them "hybrids" over the years. I', with ya'll, eat a state record, i love catfish fillets, but the record?
As far as I'm concerned it doesn't count. Don't we have separate records for alternate methods like misery does?
Nope Kansas has its records all in one group and from my understanding hand fishing is in the group too.
The old flathead record before the current Snoopy pole one, was caught on a log line in Pomona.
Remember what it weighed???
It was either 92 or 93lbs. Also the record before that was taken from Pomona as well.
well it looks like im off to fish pomona. see yall later lol jk:wink::smile2:
Even if you fish there is pretty hard finding the flatheads. I've fished there alot and have never managed to harm one! I believe 110 mile creek or something like that is where they catch alot of the big flatheads off lines. That and below the dam in the spillway.
110 mile is a great location for big flats. I have heard of monster getting pulled from there every year. Only problem most do not come from line or R/R most come from hand fishing. :confused2: I talked to one guy that has pulled out several that go upper 60's and he said most come in water just to your knees or below.
Sent the KDWP an email to see what is going on with the application for the new state record channel, and this is what I got in return.
That is correct, we did receive an application to certify a new state record on a channel cat that was over 40 pounds. However, at this time it does not look like this fish will be certified as a state record because we have not been able to confirm it is actually a channel cat. I hope this answers your question. If it does not, please feel free to contact me directly.

A Positive Attitude is a Powerful Force!
44 lbs. or whatever it was would put the record almost out of reach, as if 36 lbs. wasnt high enough already. That and having a prestigious state record be certified by way of setline is just ridiculous in my opinion. So that being said the search is still on for me. These next 5 days Im going at that record hard core, huh Shelby. I hope , I wish, I dream. After I get my name in the books, I can rest easy, and have fun catching eaters again. Call me greedy, or selfish, but that is my goal. Good luck fellas. If someone does break the record besides me, I just hope it is a good standing BOC member that practices CPR , and not some poachers that like to hang big cats from the ceiling of bait shops, and then try to say they returned it to the lake alive.
