WAVERLY, Tenn. (WKYT) - A woman says she caught a personal best 88-pound catfish while fishing in Kentucky Lake.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said Paula Cathey Smith caught the fish in December.

The Tennessean reports Smith was in a slump over the past few weeks before snagging the 88-pounder. She is an avid fisher, as her previous best was 82 pounds.

It took Smith 10 minutes for her to get the fish in the boat. She decided to release it back into the lake after posing for a photo.
