HENRY COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVD) -- Holy mackerel -- or catfish -- that's one big fish!
A woman in Tennessee was overcome with joy after she caught an 88-pound catfish in Kentucky Lake.
According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Paula Cathey Smith caught the "river monster" in December.
Smith said the catch was a personal best.
And the fish won't be kept as a trophy. That's right, Smith said she reeled the fish in for the halibut and then released it.
