OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- Blue catfish might want to stay away from a northeast Kansas couple.

Stefanie Stanley and her husband, Robert, of Olathe each hold state records for blue catfish they caught.

Stefanie Stanley set a record Saturday when she reeled in an 82.05-pound blue catfish at Milford Reservoir. It was the largest blue catfish ever caught in a Kansas lake.

But it wasn't close to the blue catfish her husband caught last August. Robert Stanley hooked a 102.8 pound catfish from the Missouri River. That's the largest blue catfish ever caught in a river in Kansas.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/YIFXql ) the Stanleys' daughter, BayLeigh, caught a 70-pound catfish in the Kaw River last year.

Stefanie Stanley released her record-setting fish back into the lake.
