A Southern Ohio teen reeled in what might be a state record-setting blue catfish. Jaylynn Parker, a 15-year-old student at New Richmond High School, says she has been fishing with her father since she was young, but needed help to get the more than 100-pound catfish from the Ohio River.
Jaylynn did not use a traditional rod and reel to pull in her catch. She used a technique called jugging. According to Jaylynn, her technique included a Clorox jug, a 200-pound test line, a hook and some skipjack for bait. The 101-pound catfish did not break the line either.
Once up on the scale, the catfish weighed in at 101.11 pounds. She is waiting for official confirmation from the state of Ohio to see if the fish she caught is indeed a record catch. (WXIX)
