I grew up in Illinois and went to college about 10 blocks from the Mississippi river. About 20 years ago there were very few large cats being caught in the Mississippi river system because of years of commercial fishing over harvesting. It is really great to see how well the fishery has recovered and the number of giant catfish that have been caught there in the last several years. If I remember right the record for blue and flathead cats were around 100 pounds just 15 years ago now they are both around 125. It will be cool to see what the fishery can produce in the next couple of decades. In the 1800s there were reports of blues being caught by commercial fishermen close to 200 lbs. That was an awesome catch and hopefully a good sign of things to come.
