I just heard a new record bluecat was caught in the Ohio River near Paduka. If true, will break the old record of 104#.
It will be the new KY & IN record depending on what licenses the angler has.
Wow !! If true, then that's a big fish !!
Gal-dam..............just shows you there are some monsters still out there. If this is true I hope this fish is still alive? Too bad you can't take scale samples of catfish. Imagine a fish over TWICE the size of Jim's big blue............
I just didn't get to see him *LOL*
You would definitely have to pull anchor & follow a fish like that.
My fish 62# was 50" and the 104# fish was 55" so it was probably close to 60" long would be my guess. I'm going to bet 58" just to see when the stats come out.
I just saw a post on a site in the KY section last night. They were asking for info about it. It takes a long time to have one certified. I'm sure if they did that, we'll know. If not, it's only speculation I guess.
Was talking to a guy at work last night who is a paylaker Said the paylake he fishes had three blues over 70-lb die last year, from what he does not know...But he was happy as he told me the owner has ordered 6000-lbs of blues to be delivered by april -1..... wonder where they are comming from
That's bullsht.........these people need to get a fuggin' clue. Do they have any idea what their "paylakes" are doing to the river populations? They don't care........it's easy money.......why take the time to go find some fish in the river when you can hit your local pay lake.
True or not I dont know..But he told me the 3-big blues died in the heat of the summer and they found them floating on the top.....I guess they come from indiana water on the Ohio River, where it is legal to net them..But I am not 100percent sure of that, but where else would they get 3-tons of giant blue cats????
Anyway, he told me the owner orders 6000-lbs twice a year, once in the spring and agin in the fall???? He said most of the cats he orders in the spring dies mid summer.......agin this is just hearsay so I cant be sure of the truth.
