A North Carolina fisherman caught a 143 lbs. Blue Catfish this past Saturday, June 18, 2011. The monster was caught at Buggs Island, better known as Kerr Reservoir in South Boston, Va.
I couldn't believe the story when I read it! A 143 lbs. blue in Virginia?! How awesome! Congrats to Mr. Anderson on his haul!
