    Welcome back, Bubbafish. Never caught anything near sixty inches long, so I couldn't tell ya a weight. But that sounds like a heck of a catch. Congrats.

    Did you catch him in NC?

    If so, you probably had a state record, maybe a new world record.

    The former world record Arkansas Blue Catfish was 60" and it weighed 121 pounds.

    The current world record blue catfish was 58" and 124 pounds.

    So, where is the pic?

    Was it a flathead or a blue? The state record flathead was around 52" and weighed 78 pounds.

    Just from my personal catches and seeing some really big catfish in my day, I think that one looks a little thin to be a state record but its still a nice fish, congrats.

    Well maybe you should go weigh him on a certified scale because if its that long you probably have the state record for sure.

    That's funny!! I have human size folks pose with my big fish, bucks, and trukey. So people can get an idea of how big they really are. I make most game look small...

    Here is another one I caught, I only had a berkley 50lb scale at the time and it buried it, and I didnt have a tape measure. Not sure what it weighed but it felt pretty heavy.

    yea sounds like a good idea ill have to remember that cause that fish does look smaller compared to me. my buddy that went with me couldnt hold him up without him touching the ground. i should have taken his pic with it. he comes up to my shoulder so yea that would have put it more into perspective.

    Our state record is only in the mid 30's. No Flatties or blues to speak of just Channels.
