“Pruitt, casting his line in the Mississippi River on Sunday, hauled up a 58-inch long, 44-inch around blue catfish that weighed a whopping 124-pounds. To get a sense of just how big that is, the state record holder was a mere 85 pounds and the world record holder tipped the scales at 121 pounds, eight ounces.”
Assuming this story is for real, I hope they put that fish back into the river. Why should that poor huge catfish suffer? It just wants to roam around and eat. It probably can’t procreate, unless it finds a “host” that is compatible.
Poor feller. It just wants to be free.
Though, the more I look at the picture, the more I suspect it’s a fake.
