    Here's a link for records from each state. Just click on your state. . . .

    http://www.landbigfish.com/staterecords/default.cfm

    You can even use the drop down list to sort by fish type (ie. channel cat), and see the record fish for each state. Click on the column headings to sort by weight.

    Most of you guys will have to haul in a 80 and even 90lber to break your state's record.

    But in PA, all you need is a 50 which is very, very, very very doable and you're GOLDEN!
