USA: big yellow catfish of 76 pound caught
A Kenefick resident caught the biggest fish of his life on April 15 when he brought a 76-pound yellow catfish out of the Trinity River.
James Pruett, is a life-time resident of Liberty County. He lives in a riverside home in the Simmons Bottom area and fishes several times each week with his wife Misty.
“He took about 30 minutes to land,” said Pruett. “I was pretty excited. I was fishing by myself. When I got him, the tip of the boat went in a little bit and water got in the boat. I bear-hugged him to bring him in.
