Whale resembles large catfish

Yep, things really are bigger in Texas! Up in Sherman, a fisherman just landed a 60 inch, 121 lb. catfish, whiskers and all. Cody Mullennix, 27, of Howe said he was fishin' off'n the bank, all of a sudden his rod and reel was jerked down and there was some awful stress bein' put' 'pon that 50 lb. test line. He said he tugged and he tugged and fought with that fish for 20 minutes 'fore he was able to land that big monster. It's a record. They is gonna put that baby on display in the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department facility. [AP story]

He who found it first: Scott Chaffin
