Most fisherman can only dream of a catch this big!
Fishing at night is a tough game, but when the reward is a catfish such as this, there’s no stopping the determined angler from dropping his line! World renowned Fishermen Yuri Grisendi (of Italy) and Philippe Careme (of France) were at it again recently, this time descending on Italy’s River Po hoping to score and boy did they!
The largest catfish ever caught was 280 pounds and over 8 feet long!
After getting out on the river and casting their line they found themselves face to face with an 8.2 foot long, 260 pound monster catfish, and the fight began! The Po River is known for its monstrous catfish and just under one year before this catch, a new world record was set by another set of Italian fisherman, brothers Dino and Dario Ferrari.
This big guy is just under the current world record holder, but is still one massive fish!
