cbs11tv.com - N. Texas Man Reels In 65-Pound Catfish: "LEWISVILLE LAKE (CBS 11 News) ― A local man has a fish story that probably beats any tales his friends can tell--and he has the picture to prove it's true.

Royce Coker, of The Colony, was trolling for sand bass with a rod and reel at Lewisville Lake yesterday.

Coker says he thought his line was caught on something--but then he realized that 'something' was pulling back.

After 45 minutes of fighting, Coker says he landed a monster of a fish: a 65-pound channel catfish."

    Here's a good one for you. Seriously, I haven't heard so many crazy stories coming from Texas since I moved out of state. I'm kind of amazed.
