potenial state record bluecat caught at meldahl dam 57.2 lbs 45.5 in on june 29
That's a great fish.. was there any pics of it.
i never found no pics of it just the story about it
Sounds like a good fish, that one will be hard to beat
there are a couple pics there. they said that he was using cut shad =)
Thanks for sharing the story and pics. Nice fish.
Thanks for sharing the story!! Congrads to a ne state record.:cool2:
That's cool, great news that blues are showing good numbers in the Ohio
It is very exciting that the Blues are moving up into Ohio and that people are finally catching some good sized ones
Congrats on the good fish and record, just a shame it doesn't appear as though there was any possibility of CPR.
Joe ... the way the recording process is set up ... there can't be much room for CPR ... it states that the fish must be frozen for future inspection until it is fully certified ......... G-
you'd figure out of anyone, the DNR would be concerned with keeping a state record fish alive. thats a shame. i can tell you right now, that record will be beaten multiple times by the end of this year
Thanks, Now that you mention it, I do remember reading that. What a shame though.
Just my 2 cents, I dont care if I put a 80lber in the boat, he wont be going to a freezer. I would rather watch her swim away than get my picture in the paper, and it wont be long before that record is broken, and yet another fish will be on the back of a tail gate headed to the freezer. No thanks....:angry::angry::angry::angry:
That is a great fish. But I agree I would rather see it swim away than go into the freezer. But congrats on the new state record.
ya i agree too i would rather watch them swim away
that is a sweet fish too bad it has to die.
Is that just in Ohio?? I haven't heard that but it does make since. Thanks for the info. Never thought about it that way but it would erase all speculations if questions arose.:0a31:
If you catch a potential state record, you do not have to kill the fish, the fish merely needs to be able to be inspected by the Ohio DNR. I have called the state on this. If you catch a monster, keep him in a livewell until he can be inspected. I use a 100 gallon horse trough for my catfish tournaments. The biologist merely wants to inspect it...if you can keep it alive for a day or two, get it weighed in, inspected, certified and then release it.
