    Blue: Ohio River

    Channel: Cumberland River

    Flathead: Altamaha River

    I think alot of our nations rivers and lakes hold world record fish, Its just a matter of catching one...Ohio, Mississippi, Tennessee, Altamaha, Sante Cooper, Cumberland, Texoma, James River...Even alot of the smaller rivers have given up State Records so I think any of the above, and even smaller rivers could produce the next record catch

    I read that a couple guys snagged a 139 lb. flat on the Arkansas river several years ago. So that gets my vote for flathead.
    Blue: Mississippi River
    Channel: Who knows?

    Blue-High Rock
    Flat-Cape Fear
    Channel-Jordan

    I know that these are far fetched but I have to supportive of my local waters. If fishing has taught me anything other than patience it has taught me that ANYTHING can and probably will happen.

    There are just too many fish comming out of the Mississippi and Lake Texoma for there not to be another record comming out of them.

    Texas fish and Game department recently shocked up several channel cats in a feeder creek for Lake Conroe that bottomed out a 50lb scale. And that was only in one creek. Lake Conroe has the highest density of channel cats per acre of any other waterbody in Texas. These fish alone would blow the state record away, and potentally the next world record is in there too.

    Blue- Potomac or James

    Channel- Red River or unknown small town Ressy

    White- Locally known River in MD like Sassafrass, Chester or Choptank, Possibly Potomac

    Flathead- Susquehanna (gonna be a hard mark to beat though... 123, i don't hear of too many up over 80 being brought in)

    Bullhead- Small farm pond... Possibly even a drainage pond

    And there are so many more species...

    I plan on catching atleast one of these so they'd better watch out once i get my boat fixed and in the water

    lol, They say that about Dam B and several other spots on Sam Raburn and Toledo Bend resevors. Personally I have scuba'd there at a few of those spots and those voltswagon sized cats are voltswagons that where sunk, from a distance in murky water some cars look mean.

    I would say that in the next 4 years we will see a blue cats taken from the waters of the james over 125 lbs. And we will see the Maryland blue cat record hit 60 lbs in the next 2 years, Hope its on my rod and from a acats member when it goes down

    Just my opinion, but I'd be watchin the the Old muddy Mississippi, fished there since I was a kid off and on and I have seen some, I mean BIG cats of all kinds come out of there and a lot of them years ago were eaten. I also know there is some awesome places elsewhere.
