Pretty big, yeah. Would be fun to stick in a mate’s pool and videotape his/her reaction.
Seems normal to me…
Seriously though, thats rediculious. Did this picture come from a reputable source or is it photoshoped? I can’t imagine you could actaully catch that think… (not like you can just reel it onto your rowboat with some 20lb test).
I saw a film once where they were catching fish that size. They had to fasten themselves to the boat if I rememeber correctly. Was pretty cool!
650 lb Marlin is one thing. What the hell do you do with a 650lb. catfish?
Yeah, a pretty reputable source (National Geographic). Caught in Thailand…
@Jason Golod: Apparently, you eat it.
Ooops, wrong link. Here’s what happened to it (with 4 other pics):
Funny, I had all your can eat fried catfish last night 🙂
This catfish is amazin!:) Anglers in northern Thailand netted this huge catfish in the Mekong River – the biggest freshwater fish ever hooked!!! Nearly nine feet long and as big as a grizzly bear, the behemoth tipped the scales at a big 646 pounds!!! Thats 293kg!!!!
Omg, that is a TON of meat in those cuts with the 4 photos link.
how can you kill such big fish???
