This month's issue has a small article on the 123-pound flathead (1998), which was caught in a Kansas resevoir. The fish was not available for inspection (it was verified, upon catching it, that it was a world record) until this year. In its stomach was a 30" buffalo estimated to weigh about 14 pounds when swallowed.
So, for big, monster cats, you need a really big bait!

That whole deal was suspect, I think it was certified by a relative of the angler or some such thing... keep hoping someone will best him with a less suspicious catch.

However, controversial records are nothing new. Many are suspicious of the old channel cat record, the one that still stands today.

I was more taken aback at the 14lb buffalo in its belly.
You are correct about dubious catches. I remember that there was a guy who was catching monster muskie out of the St Lawrence River and he was found to be putting shot in the fish to make weight.
