Watertown angler Eric Scordo has received documentation certifying that his channel catfish catch on April 23 is a world record.

The International Game Fish Association sent a signed letter from IGFA president Nehl Horton and a sealed document certifying the All-Tackle (Length) World Record catch on Lake Ontario near Chaumont Bay.

Scordo, a charter boat captain for NNY Catfish Hunter Charters, officially caught the record 90-centimeter-length catfish using cut bait and broke his own record that was set in May 2018.
