Catfish Caught Near Wisconsin Border Sets Minnesota Record

A flathead catfish caught on the Saint Croix River at the Wisconsin border has set a new record for Minnesota.

The D-N-R in the Gopher State confirms that Mark Mosby caught a 52 and a half inch flathead August second on the Minnesota side of the river near Stillwater. He told wildlife officials that the record fish "put up a great 15 minute fight" until he got it into his boat. The D-N-R says Mosby and a partner targeted big flathead catfish that are commonly found on the Saint Croix in the Hudson and Stillwater areas.
