I've got a KC Star article from 2000 that says that Jim Edmiston's 94lb blue cat (current state record) was caught from the Missouri River across from Parkville. The prior record was a 90lb'er, caught earlier that same year from the Kansas River by Preston Stubbs, Jr. of Desoto, KS.As for the blues, she said in 2000 it was a 90 lb. blue caught on the Missouri River. I asked her how that was a record in Kansas , and she said she believes it was caught from the bank in Kansas , up in Atchison or Leavenworth. The one before that was 82 lbs. caught out of the Kansas River.
