US: monster size flathehad catfish caught in Missouri

Angler Robert Davidson landed this record size flathead catfish while fishing on the Missouri river.

The monster catfish took a green sunfish baited on a bank line. The huge catfish weighed 99 pounds (45 kilos) and would have been a new state record.

he fish was brought back to the Missouri River and later released to be caught again on rod.

Still to this day seems that nobody has been able to successfully land a flathead weighing more than 100 pound on a rod and reel.
