I caught this fish yesterday on a lure that Crazy Joe made. It measured 23.5" long and weighed 4.5 pounds. It's the biggest catfish I've caught to date. It's odd; I've caught several catfish on cranks, and they have all been at least 23", but when I used chicken hearts or other natural bait the catfish I've caught have been smaller than that. Regardless, this fish was a lot of fun to catch.
