baitbucket said 50 pounds, well my Fishes of Alabama book says that "The state angling record (52 lb, 12 oz) was caught below Wilson dam on the Tennessee river in 1982. It also says that "Due to overfishing, this species has all but disappeared from the tennesee river"

Might ought to call the state fish and game commision, thats awfully close to a record and according to my book the fish might be extremly notable to state biologists.
