Big Fish Alert: Husband and Wife Team Hook Kansas Record Blue Catfish

By Chad Love


A husband/wife team from Kansas are in the unique position of each having a Kansas state record blue catfish.

From this story on kansas.com:
A Kansas couple have his and her fishing records. Stefanie Stanley, of Olathe, got hers when she reeled in a 82.05-pound blue catfish at Milford Reservoir on Saturday. Rich Witt, co-owner of the Catfish Chasers tournament in which Stanley was fishing, said it’s the largest blue catfish ever caught at Milford, and the largest from any lake in Kansas. As big as it is, though, it was about 20 pounds shy of her tournament partner/husband’s best-ever blue catfish. Robert Stanley holds the current state record for blue catfish at 102.8 pounds, caught from the Missouri River on Aug. 11 last year. “She has the biggest ever from a lake, and he has the biggest from a Kansas river,” Witt said. “Those are some nice fish.”

According to the story, the big fish was released back into the lake.
Stay tuned for more details and photos of this amazing fish.

Now THAT'S a nice kitty! Plenty of meat on that beast for a good fish fry. However, if they would have caught the giant by noodling, provided it didn't drown them, then that would have been really impressive. Call me when the grease gets hot enough and I'll bring the hush puppies and cole slaw.
