Caught this guy on a green pumpkin chatterbait, he was gut hooked pretty bad so I ate him. Very tasty. Normally I let bigger ones like this go, but he was in bad shape and probably wouldn't survive. By TN standards a trophy blue catfish is 34+ inches. He measured 34 3/4" So now I can get an angler recognition award. My scale was broke so not sure of weight but I say 15lbs give or take. My second biggest out of this lake. The Mother's Day left overs. The whole family loved it.
