MONTGOMERY COUNTY, N.C. – A man reeled in a massive catfish on a North Carolina lake, took a photo of it and released it back into the water.

“Okay… This catfish was caught at Lake Tillery this morning…AND released,” the post read. “That means this is out there to be caught again. Pass this along to any people you know that like to fish!”
