Young angler catches monster 80 pound blue catfish on Tennessee lake


A young angler caught a huge catfish on a Tennessee river last month.

Alex Woody caught the 80 pound blue catfish out of Ft. Loudon Lake near Lenoir City Park.

"It may not be as big as a Volkswagen Beetle, but it took Alex for a fun ride," the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said.

Tennessee has seen it's share of big catfish catches recently.

A midstate 6-year-old caught a catfish that weighed 11 pounds more than she does.
