Missourian Pulls In Record Catfish

Greg Bernal, 47, of Florissant, right, and Janet Momphard, 47, of St. Charles, pose for a picture with the 130-pound blue catfish Bernal pulled in at 12:45 a.m. Tuesday on the Missouri River. STLtoday.com, the website for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reported it appears to be a state record, topping a 117-pound  catfish caught on a trotline in the Osage River in 1964. Bernal said he fought the fish for 15 minutes and spent another half-hour lifting it into his boat near the Columbia Bottom Conservation Area. (AP Photo/St. Louis Post Dispatch, Stephanie S. Cordle)
