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.
