A new record catfish has been caught at Lake Mary Crawford in Mississippi.

The 14.4 pound channel catfish was landed by Mr. Richard Albritton of Bogue Chitto on March 19th.

Lake Mary Crawford is a 128-acre state fishing lake located near Monticello.

“Each lake maintains a list of record fish, and we encourage anglers to let us know if they believe their catch might be a new record,” said Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) State Lake Coordinator Jerry Brown. Fish that qualify for a state lake record include largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, crappie, and catfish. Potential record fish must be verified by a member of the Fisheries Bureau staff.

Anglers who catch a state lake record fish will receive a certificate from MDWFP, and a copy will be displayed at the lake’s office. The record will also be acknowledged on MDWFP’s website.
