The United Way is a great cause; I think we can all agree on that. For a fish fry fundraiser, the father and son team of Blake and Tyler Visin were off to the local river to go fishing for delicious, nutritious catfish for the charity function. The hope was to land enough fish to feed the employees at ReWa, a renewable water resource service where Blake Visin works as the director of information technology. Little did the Visins know that they’d land one fish big enough to feed a hundred people. Blake and Tyler Visin landed a 70-pound blue catfish!
The fish was landed in the Wateree River, in the region of upstate New York. Typically, you’d be pulling up flathead and channel catfish in this area. Little did they know they’d be landing the most eye-catching fish in the river! The 70-pound monster will be the entree and star main course at ReWa’s United Way fundraiser, which is fitting because that’s probably the biggest fried sandwich fish I’ve ever seen.
Also, I’m very hungry just LOOKING at that delicious monster.
