This report just came into our email from Striper Dave (http://www.striperdave.com). He was out with friends in what looks like the wee hours of the morning chasing catfish. This monster 52lb photo proves these guys know how to find LARGE fish. Great job guys!
Mike Short, aka Megastrike caught this 52lb blue catfish in the Potomac River from the Fort Washington, MD area. Bait used was fresh mud shad (caught earlier in a cast net). The fish was hugging the bottom in 17 feet of water and came to the boat at approximately 2am on the beginning of incoming tide.
