MONETA, Va. (WFXR) — You might recall the old phrase, “the cat’s pajamas.”
It’s appropriate for this week’s Big Ol’ Fish, a 40-inch-long, 33-pound flathead catfish.
It was caught by Scott Bird of Clendenin, W.Va. during a trip to Smith Mountain Lake last winter.
Bird says he was targeting striped bass with live bait when the giant catfish hit.
