Man catches record flathead catfish in Oklahoma

Man catches record 95-pound flathead catfish in Oklahoma

A man recently caught a massive, record-breaking flathead catfish at Pine Creek Reservoir in Oklahoma. Officials with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation said Bradly Courtright caught a 95-pound flathead catfish at the lake on a trot line. They said it was the largest flathead ever caught in Pine Creek. ODWC officials added that the catfish weighs nearly 20 pounds more than the rod-and-reel record. The catch, however, was 11 pounds short of the unrestricted division record, which was caught on a trot line in 1977 in Wister Reservoir.
