I never heard of white catfish before, but someone caught a world record one.

Awesome! White Catfish are the largest Bullheads (Ameiurus). They're not found here in Texas. https://www.roughfish.com/white-catfish
That one is an absolute tank!

More information on the species.

It will be interesting to see if he gets an IGFA all-tackle record. There are lots of huddles to overcome for that one.

Yep, possible world record but it “kinda got eaten”! Going to be urban lore like George Perry’s world record bass? 🤔🤷🏻‍♂️🤪. Actually interesting because I’ve never heard of this breed of catfish from the east coast.

There appear to be lots of contradictions. The correction article says the fish was released, but the angler said it was eaten. food

RIP, but I just noticed this!

Tomkunas, who was fishing for carp when the catfish struck, said it “ran like a 30-inch striped bass.”
