Herculaneum, MO (KSDK) - Every night we share stories with you, and we love it when you share your stories with us.

This one, is quite a fish tale. Brent Nickless caught a huge blue catfish on the Mississippi River near Herculaneum, and his brother, Mark, sent us the pictures.

He was using a trot line, baited with Asian carp.

Mark said the fish weighs 124 pounds. The Missouri Department of Conservation says if that's true, it'll be a new record.

They plan to officially weigh the fish Friday.
