OLATHE, Kan. - Blue catfish might want to stay away from a northeast Kansas couple. Stefanie Stanley and her husband, Robert, of Olathe each hold state records for blue catfish they caught.
Stefanie Stanley set a record Saturday when she reeled in an 82.05-pound blue catfish at Milford Reservoir. It was the largest blue catfish ever caught in a Kansas lake.
But it wasn't close to the blue catfish her husband caught last August. Robert Stanley hooked a 102.8 pound catfish from the Missouri River. That's the largest blue catfish ever caught in a river in Kansas.
