My friend Robbie and I had been bass fishing when it got time to fire up the grill, so we decided to put out our rods and reels while we ate. Imagine my surprise when I reeled in this monster 120lb 5oz bluecat that qualified for the new Alabama State Record. Needless to say I think my fish deserves a crown because everyone now calls me “The Catfish King”.
