    ibohunter - Thanks for the post! That's the 1st time I've heard anything about this fish! The Flathead record that was broken earlier in the year was made official in Sept.. That would be amazing to have it broken twice in one year after the old record stood for over twenty years! The 50# mark is coming soon, maybe in 2007!

    Thanks Jim!!!

    Blue Marsh is where the original Eastern PA flathead began. There are about 500,000 of his offspring in the Schuylkill River. His genes were passed sucessfully.

    Eastern PA flatheads RULE!!!!

    Unbelievable, great fish hope it holds up for the record. Two in one year is great. The fish being caught in December makes it even better. I think 50 will be broke at leat 3 times this year though. good luck to all Pa catfishermen and women this coming season.

    That fish must have been disqualified because the new official state record is a little bit smaller, but came out the same lake.

    The real state record was caught here they just never certified it. Monongahela river last summer. It was in papers all over the state.

    Bucktail,

    is there a link to this fish caught out of the Monongahela? I never heard of a state record pulled from there. All I saw was the one caught from the Ohio River that was certified, then the Blue Marsh cat that was caught then recently certified. As it stands now the state record is 48# 6 ounces
