The catfish reeled in by Jeffrey Dill at Lake Smith over the weekend could set a new Virginia state record for the biggest flathead catfish.
Dill says he was fishing with a buddy at Lake Smith around 8:30 a.m. on Saturday when he felt something tugging on the end of his $20 rod from Walmart.
After wrestling with the fish for about 15 minutes, Dill says he was able to pull it out of the water, naming him 'Big Earle'.
"Big Earle" weighed in at a whopping 68.12 pounds! MORE BELOW!
