how big was the largest wels cat
There was one from the Volga caught in a net, (a Russian River) that bottomed a 900lb scale and was in excess of 15ft long.
They are said to live over 100 years old and commonly put 10 - 20lb+ weight on per year.
They are a scavanger more than a predator.
Sneaked one out myself this evening, a modest 136, Lenka had her first big cat yday 88lb complete with catfish1.com t-shirt
You got a pic of that fish, id like to see that
I would love to see that pic
Stephen, We need pics. they may not be that big to you over there ,But over hear in the USA they are hugh. Where were the caught?
what bait ? rods? reels? line ? Inquiring minds want to know.:big_smile:
ive read in my catfish books of them exceeding 700 pounds! jeez!!!!! you need a train to haul that one in:crazy: im not a wels catfish person but plan on going wels catfishing some day:roll_eyes:
Here goes 256kg (563lb) 3m 35cm from a former Soviet river, the picture is poor and in black and white but the width accross its shoulders allowing for the time from death still shows this was one enormous wels
Man, when I get older I want to try to go overseas and catch a wels, they look cool.
i think it would be a heck of a time trying to get a nice wels cat in. keep with the monster pics. Round here you dont get a 400 lber.
That's a big ol fish.
yeah catbusster stephen is my hero if only the cats in the ohio got that big then maybe id be famous too lol
The World is bigger than Ohio lol, If ever you get over to Europe Charles be sure to tap me up.
you can bet i will but id have to win the lottery to afford it lol or have my rich uncle that lives in the poor house leave me his fortune in the will lol
I think reason that cat is sooo big is because there were actually 3 guys tryin to get him in and he fell into the big ol cats mouth and that was all she wrote. lol. that cat was enormous
o yea and catbusster, is that hook in your lip?
Hey catt buster are your rates in Euro? Curious if you knew a good crossover site I could see how much that runs in US $. I might be looking you up soon
