FORT GIBSON Lake - An 82.7-pound monster catfish was caught on Fort Gibson Lake Tuesday. 

Angler Bernie McBryde of Wagoner caught the blue catfish on a jug, beating the lake’s previous record by about 8 pounds. 

The fish was photographed, weighed, and measured by Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation biologists. 

McBryde then successfully released the fish back into Ft. Gibson Lake.
