Murray, KY – The Ohio River is richly embedded in American History; because of its westward flow, it became the convenient means of transportation and food for 18th century settlers traveling from Pennsylvania. At one time it was considered an extension of the Mason Dixon line, it borders 14 states, and has the world record for the catch of the largest blue catfish weighing 104 pounds. Patience Renzulli takes a stroll along the riverfront in Paducah where she has a run-in with one of these monstrous fish.
