Louisa man catches 66-pound blue catfish, breaks state record

Jason Emmel, of Louisa, Virginia, broke the state record catching a 66-pound, 5-ounce blue catfish with a bow and arrow, according to the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources. 

The fish – which Emmel caught in the Pamunkey River on Monday – was 3 feet, 6 inches long. 

It was verified by biologists and reviewed by the Virginia State Record Committee, according to a Facebook post from the Virginia DWR. 

Emmel’s catch is now "recognized as the current Virginia Archery State Record Blue Catfish," the DWR said on Facebook.

Emmel beat the previous state record by about four pounds.
