Posted: Updated:
GEORGIA (WRCB) -

WOAH, WHAT A CATCH! Garry Harrell of Douglas, GA caught  this behemoth of a Flathead catfish from the Altamaha River on June 9. The catfish weighs in at 101 pounds and is 55 1/2" inches in length. 

If this fish was caught on a rod/reel, it would have bested the current state record by 18 lb. As is, it is the 2nd largest Flathead caught on a limb line.

There was a 103-pounder caught on the Ocmulgee in 2009.
