Javonte Taylor, an angler from Pomona, reeled in this 61-pound 9-ounce catfish at Santa Ana River Lakes (SARL) in mid-August. Taylor caught the fish using shrimp as bait. The monster fish, which is about 20 pounds lighter than a bluezilla, was caught from shore on the back side of Catfish Lake.

According to SARL staff, Taylor broke his pole during his battle with the catfish and still managed to land the 61+ pounder.
