Justs saw that SPLASH the 121 lb. catfish caught at Lake Texoma in TX. died in DEC of last year. It sure is sad that the last 2 record cats were caught and not released so they could live----I'm sure it takes close to 100 yrs for a cat to hit 100 or so lbs. I know it's nice to keep a fish that size so others can view it but the opportunity for this fish to reproduce like it has been over the many many years has now vanished.
