Eric Fincher of Mount Pleasant, North Carolina got a good start into the New Year. He caught and released the new state record Blue Catfish weighing in at a whopping 89 pounds and measuring four feet, four inches from head to tail.
Fincher said; “I brought him in and pretty much went into shock. He was too big for the net, but I told my wife I had to get him in the boat, he was a record setter. And somehow, we did.” Wow, congratulations to Eric Fincher.
The previous record of 85 lbs, caught at Lake Norman, was set in 2004.
