Sedgwick Man Nabs 80 Lb. Catfish At Marion Reservoir

A fish story for the ages… and for this one, there’s proof. Charlue Henning, from the town of Sedgwick, nabbed an 80 pound monster catfish from Marion Reservoir. Hennnig said his bait was a piece of shad. He also says it took him 15 minutes to reel that badboy in. Henning kept the fish and cleaned it. He says he plans to have a big catfish fry with friends in the next few weeks. While quite large, the 80 pounder is not a state record. That was a 123 pounder caught at Independence’s Elk City Reservoir. But it IS believed to be the largest catch ever at Marion Reservoir.
