replacing the current champion that was caught January 16, 2004, in Lake Texoma, Texas


So that's why I saw nothing but trucks full of fishing rods all over the roads today. Texans want that record back. Lol. :-b

That fish is HUGE! 8-o 8-o 8-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

If I'm not mistaken, catfish are bottom feeders, so probably zero...except maybe carcases of dead fish on the river bottom.

I'm pretty sure you're right. That's why they can get so big. They just sit around on the bottom of the river and wait for food to come to them.

Very lazy fish. I'm jealous.

Catfish are bottomfeeders...but do not confuse that with only eating dead food. Flathead catfish (another large species) are generally caught using live bait. Catfish can only afford to be lazy when living in a river enviroment because they can set up shop in a rivers eddy which inherently bring food to them. Fish that live in lakes are much more active. This is partly the reason that many large cats are caught in Texas lakes. There are many contributing factors required for a body of water to sustain trophy or world record fish, some of those include genetic strain of fish, water temperature, forage base, commericial harvest, fishing pressure, size of water.
