USA: Record Catfish on Lake Worth, Texas
The Lake Worth catfish record fell on Monday when 24-year-olds Tim McKneely and Mark Alexander hauled in this 72-pound blue catfish.
The massive fish broke the standing record, which was only 55 pounds, according to the Star-Telegram.
McKneely and Alexander were using shad on 65-pound test when the new record hit. After taking photos, they released the fish back into the lake. The Texas record is a 121.5-pound fish caught in Lake Texoma.
