Virginia lake kicks out 143-lb. pending All Tackle World Record Blue Catfish
Small children, dogs and waterfowl can all breathe a collective sigh of relief at Lake Kerr in Virginia now that Jaws has been apprehended!
Just a hair short of a year after Greg Bernal made history with a 130-pound IGFA All-Tackle World Record blue catfish that he pulled from the Missouri River, Richard Nicholas Anderson of Greenville, North Carolina, landed this beast of a blue from Kerr Lake, Virginia. The massive cat weighed in at 143 pounds and qualifies for both the new potential All-Tackle World Record and the men’s 30-lb. line class record.
The big cat sucked in chicken livers (what, not a whole chicken??) and took 45 minutes to land.
