    Hey Rusty,

    I've never caught an albino myself but just wanted to say I was stationed in the Navy with a guy from your small hometown. Ernie Ritchie was his name. We were in the Blue Angels together in Pensacola.

    Thanks for turning that fish loose. Reps to you for that.

    DH's Albino was about that size I think. There should a pic or video of it on this board.

    Of course, not sure that any of them are TRUE Albino's.

    In most states the Albino Cats are protected and must be released unharmed immediately upon catch. Not sure about Missouri. Mr T?

    Hello Joe. Dont know if you meant the largest Albino Caught in Kansas.

    If your referring to the biggest fish CAUGHT in Kansas, your state has the ALL TACKLE WORLD RECORD FLATHEAD title. 123 pounds caught in Elk City Resovoir. Heres a pic.
