89 pound catfish caught in Lake Springfield
What a catch!
Two local fishermen made quite a catch on Saturday in Lake Springfield.
Jake Branham and John Bowling caught a catfish during the Lake Springfield Catfish Tournament Series.
The blue catfish weighed in at 89 pounds 12 ounces!
Branham and Bowling say it took them 25 minutes just to reel in the record breaking catfish.
The two have been fishing together once a week for the past 15 years and they say this time it finally paid off.
We're told they did release the fish back into the lake.
