Time to bust out the hot oil and have a good ol’ fashioned fish fry! Tony Milam just caught a what soon should be recognized as the Virginia state record, 109-pound blue catfish in Buggs Island Lake.
The 53-inch beast featured a 41-inch girth was hooked near the confluence of the Dan and Roanoke rivers and tops the current state record blue by a whopping 17 pounds. No word on what Milam caught the fish on but something like a live German Sheppard or a side of beef wouldn’t be out of the question!
Official state certification is estimated to be completed sometime next week.
