HEFNER BLUE CAT RECORD BROKEN
An Oklahoma City angler caught a 55.8-pound blue catfish Tuesday at Lake Hefner that is the new lake record.
Burt Hudson caught the big blue on a rod and reel below the dam on Tuesday.
Hudson's fish was 14 pounds heavier than the previous Hefner blue cat record, caught last year at the dam.
Hudson released the fish back into the lake. Lucky Lure Tackle, 9427 N. May, is the official record keeper for Lake Hefner.
