Connor Marcoe with his record catfish.

OMAHA — A 24-year-old Palmyra man has landed a state record flathead catfish that tips the scales at 55 pounds.

Bow fisherman Connor Marcoe's roughly 46-inch-long catch from a location he identified only as a small river in southeastern Nebraska broke the former state mark of 52 pounds and 8 ounces.

Marcoe said that "right away, I knew it was something special."

Marcoe said he fishes three or four times a week and competes in several Bowfishers of Nebraska tournaments.
