Heads up, catfish anglers! We have a pending new water body record blue catfish from Kirby Reservoir. Congratulations to Armando Flores for landing this beautiful 40.5-in blue catfish that weighed 36.62 lbs yesterday evening! This fish was caught by rod-and-reel baited with a live sunfish. Mr. Flores released this fish back to the reservoir this morning.
