Catfishing photo

From _The Virginia-Pilot:

_Virginia’s first triple-digit freshwater fish has been caught. Tim Wilson of Natural Bridge landed the historic 102-pound, 4-ounce blue catfish while working the waters of the James River near Dutch Gap.

_Wilson’s fish is being considered for state-record status by a committee of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

The big blue easily tops the current state-record blue of 95-11, caught in 2006 in the James River by Archie Gold of Jetersville.
