Potential South Dakota Record Blue Catfish

Corky Lemon and his fishing partner, Terry Matheny, had a magical day on the water on July 21st, as participants in a Big Sioux Catfish league event.

While their fish count number wasn’t all that impressive — four fish between the two of them — the total weight of their haul — 210.25 pounds — was incredible, including a potential new South Dakota state record blue cat that weighed a scale-breaking 99.25 pounds!

According to the Sioux City Journal, Corkey and Matheny were dropping their bait into a pair of deep and dirty holes around the west entrance of Stone Park when Matheny hauled in a 71-pound blue cat followed by Lemon’s 99.25-pound whiskerfish. The pair also brought home another 35-pound blue and a five-pound channel cat.
