After reading a thread on her a minute ago I got curious. What is the lake record on Lake Houston? Also if anyone knows.. in Sheldon? Caught decent fish at Sheldon but Lake Houston, haven't caught anything worth bragging about. Bass fishing that is. Or other...

I figured that cats might have been a little bigger. But thanx for the info. I got one off of the river that was almost 35-40#s but wasn't necesarilly legal back in my younger stupid days. I learned as I got older. Pretty sure it was a yellow cat way back then. I felt bad for keeping it because I knew it was old but it was gut hooked. But it did fry up damn nice. I could say where, it's right off the river off of I-10 so if you find it and get arrested, it's not my fault. Been about 10 or 15 yrs since I've been there. I've learned to do things right.

Is it just me or does that seem really small? I know they don't get as big as the blues and flatheads but 4.33 lbs is it?

The information that I posted, was copied and pasted from the Texas Parks and Wildlife website... Is there somewhere else that lists the lake records?

When I was a kid I caught a huge bowfin on lake houston. Not knowing what it was, we tossed it back into the lake. Looking back, wish I would have had it weighed....could have been a lake record.

I wasn't questioning the info. Just seems that the lake would yield a bigger fish than that by now.

Like myself, there probably have been people that have caught lake records, but did not know what they had. I have seen pictures of catfish from this lake, if they would have been certified, they more than likely would have had a lake record.

Atleast we all agree some seem a little small. But what the hell. Atleast someone on here has a chance to get in the record books if all the info is correct. I wouldn't mind putting my name in the books.

I just certified a 32.5# Blue cat that was a water body record on Lake Houston- Rod@Real. I have caught 2 more bigger but didnt certify either. The good thing is she is still swimming in the lake. Good luck on yaws next trip out- see ya on the water.
