The 1st catfish of the year was caught on Wednesday 22nd Febuary 2017 by Dan Pearse. It was his first ever catfish and it weighed in at a massive 71lb. The previous catfish lake record for Tuscany Lake stood at 70lb 6oz so not only did Dan have his first ever catfish, he broke the lake record.
A very well done to Dan, he took all the advice given to him and because he was geared up correctly he banked a fish of a lifetime.
Luckily Ben and I were able to assist Dan in the weighing and photos.
Here are a few pictures.
Dan Pearse was back again and amazingly smashed the Tuscany Lake record again, this time landing a massive cat at 80lb 8oz. Well done Dan.
Here are a few pictures of the new lake record catfish.
