It swims its bait
i talked to my boss today and he said that there is a new state record bluecat and that it was over 90 pounds. anyone hear about it yet or have pics?
CINCINNATI (AP) Two southern Ohio fishermen say they've landed a state-record sized blue catfish, and they have videotape to prove it.
Chris Rolph of Williamsburg hooked into the 96-pound blue cat Wednesday night while fishing with buddy Jon Owens near Cincinnati. The next day, they got WKRC-TV to videotape them holding the fish and releasing it into a private pond near their homes.
Rolph has started the certification process with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife, which lists the Ohio record for a blue catfish as a 57.2 pounder caught in June 2008 in the Ohio River.
Division fish biologist Debbie Walters said Friday that records for this species have been recognized for about a year in Ohio, and that blue catfish can exceed 100 pounds.
has it gone through the state scales and everything yet? just because they weighed it and put it in a pond doesnt mean its in the clear catching a fish that big puts a extreme amount of stress on the fishAccording to the story I posted it did survive, but it isn't in the river.
