New Lake Record Catfish at Molyneux

It seemed to be the night of the big cats last night (August 4th) with two being caught almost simultaneously. Barry in Barn landing a 56lb catfish around 11.30-12pm, whilst at the same time Paul in Stones was battling his own demon in the shape of another monstrous cat…

This one led him a merry dance around the back of the island for quite some time before he managed to tame and bring it to the net, where he found that the battle was not quite won. It was now a case of fitting a quart into a pint pot (one for you oldies out there). Eventually it was bundled into the waiting net, and assistance was called upon to help weigh and photograph the beast… It weighed in at a new lake record weight for Catfish at 75lb’s.

Massive congratulations Paul… Cracking fish!!
