He's gonna need a big sack
...of corn meal to fry up this catfish.
ALTON, Ill. - Tim Pruitt, of Alton, Ill., holds a 124-pound blue catfish that he hooked on the Mississippi River near Alton. The fish is 58 inches long and 44 inches around. It took Pruitt more than a half-hour to drag the fish into his boat. It is the largest of its kind in state history, and is expected to be certified a world record by the International Game Fish Association.

Dude, that fish died on the way to some store where they were going to put it in a tank to show off to customers. Maybe Cabella's or Bass Pro Shops.
