Local angler Will Edgar hoists a 30-pound flathead catfish he caught recently at a private lake in Yazoo County. Will used a 6-foot medium heavy Berkley Lightning Rod baitcasting rod, a Pflueger Templer baitcasting reel, 50-lb. test PowerPro braided line, and a live sunfish for bait. The giant female catfish was released, as she was heavily laded with roe. Will's wife, Helen Edgar, was on hand to witness the catch.
