    Hi guys. I'm new here and this is my first post. I'm the guy that caught the potential Pa. state record. I gave an interview to the Post gazette and it should be in tomorrows paper. I decided to do some research after I caught the fish and found this excellence website. The stats on the fish are 47lbs, 43" length, 31-1/2" girth. I didn't even know it was a possible state record and was on the way to returning it to the river when a friend called and told me about the current record. I submitted the paperwork to Harrisburg yesterday. I guess now it's a waiting game with the state. I still can't believe the amount of publicity this is generating. I'll post some pictures once i figure out how.

    Thanks everyone for all the kind words. I'll try to post a picture with this reply. Any help would be appreciated if it doesn't work.

    Blacky: I gave the fish to Cabelas in Hamburg Pa. It is in their aquarium doing fine.

    Catchinghogs: I need to have 10 posts before I can send you an PM.
