MURFREESBORO, N.C. - A fisherman in Murfreesboro, North Carolina caught a record-breaking blue catfish on Monday.
Zakk Royce caught the 105-pound fish at Lake Gaston, where he had caught another record breaking blue catfish the day before. His first catch weighed 91 pounds.
Royce told the Associated Press he was fishing alone Sunday and had to call a friend to help him lift the 91-pound catfish into the boat. Monday, his father helped him lift the second catfish from the water. It didn't fit in his nets.
Royce released both fish back into the lake.
