One-Acre Pond In Urban DFW Produces 50-Pound Blue Cat

Brett Lee Curran caught this 50 pound blue catfish in an urban pond in the greater DFW area.

Colleyville, TX -- Using a 7-foot rod with 17-pound test, Texas eighth grader Brett Lee Curran kicked off his summer fishing with a whopper -- a 50 pound blue cat in a pond that sits just a mile and half from DFW airport...and is only an acre big.

The kicker to the story is that the pond had never been stocked with catfish -- only rainbow trout back in 1994.

"They said it was 42 inches long and 32 inches around," according to the dad.

You can read the entire story in the Colleyville Courier.
