US: a new state record 52 lb flathead catfish for Michigan

From the past week there is a new flathead catfish record for the state of Michigan, and it was caught in a rather uncommon and strange way, while ice fishing.

Expert fisherman Dale Blakley, caught the 52 pound (23.55 kg) and 46 inch  flathead catfish the past week on Sunday, Janauary 12, while deep fishing on Barron Lake in Cass County.

The previous state record  49.8 pound catfish was caught by Rodney Akey in 2012.
