That's not the one that got away. That's the one that tried to eat me.

What did they use to catch it? A crane and steel wire?

My grandfather caught one of the largest brown trout in Missouri in 1999, it was 18 lbs and 24 in. long.

Apparently they use Patriot missles that they bought on the black market. I don't see how anything else would even come close to slowing that beast down.

Oh, a catfish that size would be pretty docile, and very old. Now if they found a 600 lb smallmouth bass, we'd be in serious trouble, so would sharks.

I think it said that they used a net of some sort. I wonder how they got it in the boat, if at all. It would take 3-4 men to move it anywhere.

That gigantic catfish is caught in the NEof Thailand in "Mae-Kong" river. I can't believe Catfish can get that big.

Damn that's huge, reminds me of large Silver Arowanas that grow out in the wild.
