(WXYZ) — Now that’s a big fish.
An Indiana man recently broke Michigan’s record with his flathead catfish catch.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources said Lloyd Tanner caught a flathead catfish that weighed 53.35 pounds and measured 48 inches in the St. Joe River on May 29.
The previous state-record flathead catfish weighed 52 pounds and was 46.02 inches long.
"I've been fishing Michigan for almost 30 years," Tanner said in a press release. "What draws me to Michigan is fishing for big catfish."
