Michael Morris caught this huge blue catfish on Greers Ferry Lake on Feb. 15, the only fish hooked on a 25-hook trotline. A black salty got the cat to bite. The fish first bottomed out on a 50-pound scale so Michael resorted to weigh the person, then the person and fish, on a digital bathroom scale to get the weight: 63 pounds. "My personal best," Morris said. The weekend before that one, Morris says, he caught a 20-pound blue on the same line, same bait and same hook, his first fish of 2020. But following the big catch Feb. 15, he went back the next weekend and only caught a 1.5-pound channel cat. Such is the life of fishing for catfish.
