One big kitty:
Nick Anderson (left), of Greenville, N.C., with help from his father, Rick Anderson (center), and brother, Jeramie Mullis, show off the 143-pound blue catfish that Nick Anderson caught in Kerr Lake. Anderson caught the fish just over the Virginia line near Clarksville, Va., where the John H. Kerr Reservoir is known as Buggs Island Lake. The fish weighed in at 143 pounds, 13 pounds and will likely notch a new world record. The existing record blue catfish, which weighed 130 pounds, was pulled out of the Missouri River last year.
