    EricM caught a 70-pound-plus blue cat today on Chickamauga Lake. He knew (because I told him) that the Tennessee Aquarium was in need of another monster blue for their Nickajack Tank display. He gave 'em a ring and they sent out the official "catfish transport truck." Provided it makes it through a 30-day quarantine healthy, EricM's big fish will be famous! See the fish and hear EricM tell the story here:

    Thats really cool. I went to cabelas today and saw some of their monster cats in the tank and my g/f was like"Why do you want to catch those ugly monsterous things?" My reply, "Because theyre ugly monsterous things." The guy next to me laughed.
    I cant get over how big the blues eyes look.

    Thanks for sharing it with us. Would love to catch or at least hook one like that just once. Looks like it was pretty lively so it should make it through the 30 day ordeal ok.Congrads on the great catch
