We have all had those days out on the water when you’re thinking it’s just about time to pull in your line, put away your gear and head back home empty handed. Then out of the blue, WHAM! You get that one bite and you suddenly think you have got a monster at the end of your line.
I’m sure that is what Stefan Seuss, Uli Schuppler and Patrick Nimz thought when they hooked a monster 218 pound, over seven feet long Wels catfish on the River Po in Italy. The men snagged it while on the bank and were forced to hop into a motorless dingy only to be dragged for a mile until the fish gave up and they brought it to shore. After catching the monster fish on film they released it back into the water.
We’ve seen some huge fish caught on our lure but nothing like this massive catfish. The original article can be seen here (thanks to The Sun – UK Edition) if you want to check out a picture of this enormous fish.
So fishermen, what’s the biggest trophey fish you’ve caught?
