Leavenworth, Kansas (CNN/KCTV) -- A Kansas woman is looking to find a home for a very unusual pet. Charlotte Pennington caught an 84-pound blue catfish over the weekend while fishing with her boyfriend on the Missouri river.

Pennington says she's caught 30 and 40 pounders before, but this catch is "the big one."

Now she is keeping the gargantuan fish alive in a 9 by 9 by 5-foot swimming pool at a friend's house.

She hopes to find a home for the fish and keep it from turning into catfish dinner.
