I saw that pic on cnn this morning; that's quite a cat. I was glad to hear it's survived being caught and going on display, although I'm sure it'd be happier in the murky depths. :|

I saw that on the news on Monday. It's a pretty cool thing. We used to go boating up by Alton, never again will I get out on a pair of skis knowing that a 124 lb catfish could dart after me.

My husband was cracking up this morning, about a fish "the size of a 6th grader" since we have a 6th grader...

nice catch, this cat was probably the king of the lake
i'll post a pic tomorrow of the same type of catfish, but it took two guys to lift it out of the water to take a snapshot..
quote"The fish has been kept alive and will be on display in a tank at the Cabela's Outfitter store in Kansas City, Kan.,"
I really can't justify that...
kind of sickening to me..poor fish

Holy crap! That is huge! I'm suprised he got it out of the water in only 1/2 hour, I'd have probably been pulled in after the fish. LOL
