    Hi all:

    On saturday afternoon, October 7th 1922, Georgina Ballantine from Scotland sailed into the U.K. record books by catching a 64lb salmon on the river Tay, a record that STILL stands in my book.

    The 1922 catch was on a river, the most recent one, (a 66lb Wels catfish) was on a PRIVATE lake, I've fished it for pike myself so I know it isn't that big. As far as I'm concerned, in order for the OLD record to be beaten, it must be done so on a RIVER. What do you guys think?

    The links below should help you out.

    P.S.

    I was gonna post the "85 year old record" story tomorrow (for obvious reasons), but reading THIS has forced my hand.

    In Pennsylvania, a record must be caught in public waters.

    I agree with the old record standing. My only question is...Why is there a record of the largest freshwater fish caught by a woman? I could be wrong, but I don't think we have records divided by gender here.

    Also, the Missouri state record, and unless it's since been beaten, world record black crappie was caught in a private farm pond. Is that "wild caught"? What lake would be "wild caught" when the inhabitants of that lake were stocked there? Around here, farm ponds do count towards records. Pay lakes where mature fish are stocked, and caught should definantly not be included, but "wild caught" is also a misleading term. JMHO.

    Your right matt.To me the term Wild means public waters not privately owned ponds or lakes where pond owners can feed fish .
