Thumbs up World record catfish!

I didn't get all the details, but a guy caught a 130 pound catfish. I think they said he caught it in the Missouri river. It must have been a world record for that particular kind of catfish because I think I have heard of larger ones caught around the world.
He said that he caught it on one of those flying carp that jumped in his boat, just filleted it and threw it out to the bottom. If I hear it again at 10 I'll try to get all the facts.
I wonder if those giant catfish like that are good to eat as a 5 pounder?
Have a fantastic weekend!
Gordon

EXCELLENT! I know eating one like this would be akin to eating and old boot, but I would've like to see this big one go to a hatchery to breed more champions!

Impressive, but one ugly ***. (The fish, I mean.)
