FW Fishermen Land BIG Catch

Dec 19, 2011

Two Fort Worth fishermen have launched a new legend: the Lake Worth monster.

This morning, Tim McKneely and Mark Alexander reeled in a really big catfish. They knew they had a record-breaker on the line and contacted the nearby Fish and Wildlife office.

Officials came out and measured the "blue catfish". It weighed 72 pounds, was four feet long, and 35 inches "around."

After measurements and a quick photo, the "Lake Worth monster" was released to fight another day.
