    I DIDN'T KNOW IF ANYONE HAD STARTED A THREAD ON NEWS OF A NEW RECORD CATFISH FROM NORTH DAKOTA. A 42 LB 1 OZ. BEHEMOTH WAS TAKEN FROM MOON LAKE, A 106 ACRE LAKE NEAR VALLEY CITY, ND. THE OLD RECORD OF 33 LBS 4 OZ WAS SHATTERED BY THIS MONSTER. THE LADY ANGLER FROM FARGO,ND WAS FISHING WITH HER BOYFRIEND ON AUGUST 2ND. THE FISH WAS TAKEN ON A FROG WITH 30LB TEST. WORD IS THAT CATFISH WERE STOCKED BACK IN THE LATE 1980'S AND EARLY 1990'S AND A FEW LARGER FISH HAVE BEEN TAKEN OVER THE YEARS. MOON LAKE RECENTLY HAS BEEN MANAGED AS A PUT-IN-TAKE RAINBOW TROUT LAKE. MIGHT HAVE TO MAKE A TRIP THERE SOON.SEE ACCOMPANYING STORY IN M.NORTHLANDOUTDOORS.COM BY BRAD DOKKEN .

    The Kansas state record channel cat is also from a trout infested lake.
