Woman nets record ND catfish in Moon Lake

West Fargo, N.D. (AP) – A West Fargo woman has landed a North
Dakota record channel catfish.

The fish 31-year-old Tina Willis caught over the weekend in Moon
Lake southwest of Valley City was 40 inches long and weighed 42
pounds, 1 ounce. That broke the state record of 33 pounds, 4 ounces
set in 1991 on the Red River by Bruce Pannkuk of Minneapolis.

Willis used a frog for bait. She says it felt like she had
hooked into a log.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department confirmed the
record.
