New World Record Blue Catfish

A Possible New World Record Catfish Was Caught In Missouri


On July 20, 2010 a possible new world record blue catfish was caught in the Missouri River. Greg Bernal and Janet Momphard landed the 130 pound blue catfish while fishing at night. He said it took only about 15 minutes, a very short time, to land the possible new world record catfish.

The huge blue catfish was 57 inches long and 45 inches in girth. It hit a piece of Asian carp.

If this catfish is certified as the new world record, it will replace the old record that was a 124 pound catfish caught in the Mississippi River in 2005. That fish took 40 minutes to land.
