Two men now hold the Lake Konawa record for the largest flathead catfish noodled after they recently pulled a fish weighing more than 85 pounds from the water in Oklahoma.

Jayson Spencer and Brandon Lamoni were noodling at Lake Konawa when they pulled a flathead catfish weighing 87.85 pounds from the water, according to Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation officials. The catfish was 53.75 inches in length and 38.25 inches in girth.

Authorities said Spencer caught the flathead catfish and Lamoni helped pull it out of the water.

Ken Paulie owns the world and Kansas record for a flathead with a 123 pound fish he caught on rod-and-reel in 1998. The pole and line record in Missouri is 77 pounds, 8 ounces. The alternative method record in Missouri is 100 pounds.
