My brother called me last night excited abut their latest fishing trip. They scored 3 blue cats weighing 64, 68 and 70 pounds last night. He is going to try and get me some pictures; I will post them here if and when I get them.

Those are our BIG catfish in the USA. Those are nice ones but nothing compared to European cats or Amazon catfish that can grow into the hundreds of pounds! ;)

Actually I read an article somewhere that said that ours did get that big until they started comercially harvesting them and there was even an old picture with it but I can't remember where the article was at.
If it flies it dies, If it runs its done, Hook'it, snag'it, gig'it, just kill itFire up the grill cause deer huntin ain't catch and releaseI dig hot chicks in camo bikini's with guns in their hands.

You're right but I meant in the last 100 years. Still the blue's are big fish. :lol:

Now that is a catfish, and 3 in one night. Are they good to eat when they are that big? 4-5 lbs is the biggest I have caught here on Oregon. I know ther are some much bigger ones in the Columbia and Snake rivers but never fish for them.

I asked the same thing. They've already started eating them and assure me they are quite good to eat.
