Murfreesboro guide lands 81-pound monster on solo trip

Refusing to be ignored as one of North Carolina's premier trophy catfish destinations, Lake Gaston unveiled another monster last Friday. Shortly after breaking off one huge fish, Zakk Royce of Murfreesboro rallied his efforts to overpower a massive 81-pound blue cat that he released. Royce, who runs Zakk’s Guide Service, is the son of Jon Royce, who caught an 86-pound blue at Gaston this past March.
