Another monster catfish caught at Utah's Huntington North Reservoir

Aug. 16, 2007

Utah Record Catfish
Huntington, Utah - Price resident Calvin Grogan landed a lake-record catfish at Huntington North Reservoir on Aug. 8. The channel catfish weighed 27 pounds and measured 36 inches.

Grogan caught the fish at 10:20 p.m. that evening. Huntington North Reservoir is two miles north of the town of Huntington in east-central Utah.

Grogan was fishing from the bank near the boat dock that evening. He baited his size-2 treble hook with raw chicken meat and liver, and cast it into the water. Once he hooked the monster fish, it took him 20 minutes to land it.

This latest catch breaks a record at the lake that was established just three weeks ago by Clifton Elliot of Price. Elliot landed a 25-pound, 34-inch catfish on July 26.

This latest catch still falls short of the state record channel cat. It was caught in 1978 at Utah Lake. That fish tipped the scale at 32.5 pounds and measured 39.75 inches.
