Tulsa World has reported Earl and Jessie Harless hold the new lake record for a blue catfish caught on Fort Gibson Lake. The couple landed a 73.6-pound blue cat that was 49.5-inch length and 36.5 inches of girth to break the former record. Oklahoma’s overall record blue catfish is a 98-pounder caught on Lake Texoma in 2004. Oklahoma’s Lake Records program recognizes trophy fish caught in lakes across the state.
