    Matt, Doc Lange explained to me that Ohio still has the blue cat listed as an endangered species in its waters, therefore until the state removes it from the list then there will be a open spot for the state record blue cat. I think the same applies for West Virginia.

    So does that mean that no one can register a fish until they are remoced off the endagered species list??

    thats correct, Doc has caught several blue cats at CJ Brown and the Ohio river, unfortunately none will qualify until they lift the status of being endangered

    I lost the link but there is a database online somewhere. You can select which state and it pulls up every species of fish that has a record in the state. You can filter on the method used(RnR, all tackle, line class, etc). Ill see if i can fidn it. Im thinking it was a DNR or parks and wildlife site.

    I recall seeing someone in the flathead forums a few weeks back claiming(had a link to the article as well) stating they had caught the new flathead record. I dont remember if it was state record or lake record, or even caught by who or what state.

    Years ago ,I had the record for flathead in Arkansas. It was a 60 lber , but it was beat shortly after. I've hooked some big fish that were more than I could land. I've caught several in the 20 to over 30lb range on rods. Using non sporting gear have caught many 20 to over 40 lb range also.
