Catch of the Month
Water Body Record — November 3, 2013
This blue catfish, 29.46 pounds and 40.5 inches, was the first record catch to be certified from 153-acre Nolte Lake on the Guadalupe River. Patrick Cates caught the fish on a rod and reel baited with shad. Released alive, the big cat qualified for both a weight record and a catch & release record.
One interesting photo will be selected by our staff and showcased on the Angler Recognition Program website each month. Send us a good photograph of the fish and the angler and your catch may be selected!
- Photos must be submitted in conjunction with an ARP application for any of our award categories.
- Photos may be mailed or emailed but must be high quality and clear.
