I like catfish deep fried, but holy crap!!!
N. Texas Man Reels In 65-Pound Catfish
LEWISVILLE LAKE (CBS 11 News) ― A local man has a fish story that probably beats any tales his friends can tell--and he has the picture to prove it's true.
Royce Coker, of The Colony, was trolling for sand bass with a rod and reel at Lewisville Lake yesterday.
Coker says he thought his line was caught on something--but then he realized that "something" was pulling back.
After 45 minutes of fighting, Coker says he landed a monster of a fish: a 65-pound channel catfish.
Coker was in a 16-foot bass boat, and he says he had a hard time pulling it into the boat.
Texas Parks and Wildlife says if the catch is verified, it would be a new record for the lake. The previous record-holder weighed just 22 and a half pounds.
