On Sunday, a Tennessee fisherman reeled in a “Cumberland River Monster.”

Micka Burkhart was fishing in Stewart County this week when he pulled to the surface a monster catch. With a 30-pound test line, he was able to bring in a 118-pound 7-ounce blue catfish. It also measured 54 inches long with a 41-inch girth. The battle took roughly 45 minutes.

Pending review, Mr. Burkhart may have a new Tennessee record! It was released back into the river, according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency.
