State Record Catfish Returns From the Past

Record #:
Wilson recounts how Rocky Mount angler, E. J. Bowden, got his state record for catching a channel catfish returned after almost thirty-nine years. Bowden caught the channel catfish, which weighed twenty-three pounds and four ounces, in City Lake in Rocky Mount. However, through a mix-up, it was years before he got official recognition for the catch.
