John Thomas of San Diego broke a Miramar Reservoir lake record yesterday afternoon with a 38.6 pound whopper, we’re just not certain which one. The fish was initially reported as a channel catfish, which would have broke the 31.4 pound record mark set in 2006. However, upon receiving the photos we’re not so certain this is a channel cat afterall. In either case, its a new lake record, as the Miramar blue catfish record stands at “only” 22.40 pounds. That’s small in comparison to the blues produced at other lakes like San Vicente and Otay, where 100 lb class fish have been caught.
Thomas caught the fish on a chunk of bonito while fishing from the shoreline west of the courtesy dock. The fish was released, which is good news for future lake record prospects.
