    I caught one in a farm pond 2 years ago with a net. It was feeding along the surface real close to shore and me and my friend draged it up on shore. Weighed about 12 pounds.

    a lot of the pic's of albino's here are'nt true albino catfish. a true albino has red eyes. albino is a complete absence of pigment. there's a lot of whites and yellow channels in a lake close to my home. i caught one about 12 pounds last year. but it had brown eyes. when i was a kid i caught an albino in a paylake. thier eyes look freaky...
