I was just thinking of our state record cat here in Nebraska. I looked them up and was a little shocked at how long it's been since they were set. Blue-1970@ 100lbs 8oz Channel-1985@ 41lbs 8oz Flattie-1988@ 80lbs These are the rod and reel (the real way to fish) records. I kind of like the fact that something can last so long but, at the same time, wonder why they have not yet been topped. Perhaps some of the Brothers and Sisters would have some insight on my thoughts here.
