US: record 79 pound flathead catfish caught

Angler Danny Aderhold, caught a flathead weighing 79 lbs and 9 oz while fishing in the Cooper River this past Wednesday.

Although Aderhold's flathead is technically the state's record, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources said it must beat the previous record by more than 8 ounces to take the title. Aderhold  missed it by only few ounces.

The current record stands at 79 and 4 oz caught at Santee Cooper Diversion Canal in late 2001 by angler Jessica Preston.
