I caught a big catfish that was covered with blue bumps in the kanawah in winfield.I took it to the DNR to show them and asked them what is was.They said they'd never seen anything like that before and asked me to leave it there so they could test it.A couple weeks later i stopped in to see if they'd found out anything.The officer stated the fish had tested positive for hiv.I was astonished.I asked how that was possible especially if it was medical waste and asked wouldnt the volume of water dilute any kind of diseases? He said the best he could guess was that it must've got rear ended by a fairyboat. LOL

I caught a 70 pound flathead in 2005 off the bank in Mt Vernon Indiana. Then earlier this year I was 2 pounds off the current state record blue catfish. Current record is 104 pounds and my monster weighed in at 102!

seen big fish pics wrote:
My uncle was on the concrete crew that built the wstend bridge, he had pics of them using cranes to remove huge 3-400# cats and had gar pics drum fish in 60# range and carp in 100# range one they pulled out of the form in the river weighed in & was close to the size of a vw beatle I would have never believed it had I not seen proof I've pulled several cats in on river that were 60-100#
I remember one of my texts having an x-ray of the belly of a 200 lbs catfish or carp's belly from the Mississippi and it had a cow head in it (if I remember correctly)

Three places for big catfish are, directly near the bridge pilings at 6th street bridge, and at the mouths of Guyandotte and Tug Fork at South Point.
