KANSAS CITY, Kan. - A record 124-pound blue catfish caught earlier this week by an Illinois man fishing in the Mississippi River died on its way to the Cabela's Outfitter store where it was to go on display.
Tim Pruitt, 33, of Godfrey, Ill., caught the world-record blue catfish early Sunday near Alton.

I've been in Alton and I know where Godfrey is. I've been on that part of the river watching Bald Eagles!

There's a resturant near there that has live aquariums at each table showing the fish in the river.

So I wonder if the catfish will still go to Cabella's or if it'll end up in one of those restaurants. ;)
