Bebe McElroy Reels In 185 Lb Stingray In Cocodrie To Set New Louisiana State Record
Bebe McElroy was competing in the Desk and Derrick Club’s Diva Rodeo, when she reeled in the catch of a lifetime…a 185 lb Stingray! If the catch is approved by the Louisiana Outdoor Writers Association, it will shatter the current record of a 141.31-pound stingray, caught by Hunter Andras in 2004.
“For years, Vic and I have been catching these stingrays and bringing them to various rodeos for miscellaneous largest fish,” McElroy told the Louisiana Sportsman. “People were scared to death of them; they wouldn’t get within 10 feet of a little bitty stingray. It’s not going to hurt you.
