St. Albans man has lucky day fishing
A St. Albans man hauled in a record-breaking catfish recently. Mark Foster broke the record for the largest blue catfish caught in West Virginia, verified by the Division of Natural Resources. Foster used cut bait to catch the 43.9-inch, 44.5-pound fish in the Ohio River, which ironically broke his own record from 2011 which was 32.28 pounds. It must have been Foster's lucky day, because on the same day that he caught the record catfish, he also landed a 52.25-inch longnose gar, which tied a record.
