SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

A Saginaw teen reeled in quite the catch.

Tyler Stanton caught the 35-pound, 42-inch flathead catfish at the boat launch in Zilwaukee.

The state record for largest flathead catfish is held out of Cass County where a 52-pounder was caught at Barron Lake in 2014. The fish was more than 46-inches long, according to Michigan DNR.

In July of this year, an 8-year-old Saginaw County boy also caught a more than 30-pound catfish from the Saginaw River.
