This is a picture of catfish a guy recently caught at Lake Texoma in Texas
. According to the news, he was fishing from the shore with a 20 pound test line. When he realized what a huge fish he had caught, he stayed in the water with it and kept it close to shore with his hands.
He used his cell phone to call a friend and tell him to bring a scale. The friend got there and the scale topped out at 100 pounds. They took it to the nearby Bait shop and weighed it there. It weighed 121 pounds!
Luckily a game warden was there and called the Athens Freshwater Fisheries Center and asked them if they wanted the fish. They sent a 'live truck' to the sight and brought the fish safely to Athens. They are getting it ready for the public to view. The paper said it would be two or three weeks before they'd release it into the public tank. They estimated the 121 pound catfish was about 27 years old!
