Angler caught 100-pound catfish in Missouri River at Kansas City



Kansas City, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) on Nov. 6 presented Mathew McConkey with a plaque honoring his catch of a 100-pound flathead catfish, a new state record for alternative fishing methods. McConkey caught the behemoth flathead on a trotline on Sept. 19 from the Missouri River offshore from the city of Riverside, a burg close to downtown Kansas City.
"It's awesome," he said. "I've fished hard for it, and this is probably the fish of a lifetime."
