Rottal I'm a little slow on the curve but yes the fish did die in transport.Rottal said:I heard (from my girlfriend, whom is evil and likes to tell me things that she knows would upset me when it comes to fishing) that this catfish later died when they were transporting it to the tank it was going to reside in. anyone hear this? if so, what a shame...i wonder how old a blue cat that big is....
First of all, im scared of that thing,IceInTheVeins said:Blue cats are incredible fish. This will beat the old world record from last year that was caught at Lake Texoma and was 121 pounds. This record usually falls every couple of years. The world record flathead cat is 123 pounds and was landed on 12 pound test. Incredible because flathead cats fight even harder than the mighty blue and live in heavy cover. In fisherman magazine and biologists have said that 150 - 200 pound blue cats still exist. The record should top 150 within 10 years and maybe 200 within a few decades. Legends of blues up to 350 lbs exists.
This monster was caught below Melvin Price dam on the Mississippi River north of St. Louis in swift current at a flow of 115,000 cfs, which is almost twice as great as the total inflow to lake powell now. Tons of water.
Biggest cat I have ever hooked was around 40 pounds and was a channel cat. However blue cats do exist in the Colorado River below Loma but they are uncommon. And I know the difference between a blue and a channel. The blue's anal fin is square and contains more rays than the channel's. The tail of the blue is more square as well. Not inconceivable that 50 - 60 pound blues or even channels exist in the Colorado's deep holes. Some of the holes approach 100 feet in depth, so they can never be sampled and the fish are never caught and seldom hooked. The go bye bye so quick in the powerful current.
