nice fish what kind of catfish are they
Yea man them freaking things are huge. I just saw a u-tub flick yesterday of some guy reeling in some giants...it was crazy.
All I can say is .....SWEET MAN SWEET ! Thanks for the pics:confused2:
Mekong giant Catfish is my guess
they're wels cats. common to england, and australia.
awesome wells catfish!! I'd love to hook up with some of them. Got some annoying kids in the neighborhood that would be good bait for them.
You need a big truck and a long rope and a giant hook with a 20 pound piece of bait to get those bigguns in.....lol :smile2:
Who needs a truck call AAA and tell em you want to use a tow truck for awhile to fish with.
I can't help but wonder if they ate them, released them, or what?
Those fish must be at least 20 years old...
ya those giants are awsome... I have seen a few videos of people catching them....
They are Wels. Not so common in England, they do not occur naturally. All English Wels are imports. They are native to Europe and are widespread thoughout the large river systems.
I guaranty they did not eat them. I'm sure some rural folks do eat smaller ones but fish that size caught by anglers are always released. Not only that they are very well cared for in the time between capture and release. The tarp they are laying on is used so they don't get scraped up on the ground. Many times, fish that big are not even brought out of the water unless they can be handled properly.
Dave, Those are Wels catfish. There is a section in the "Catfish Discussion" area about them. There's a guide service that sponsors the BOC (Catbusters I believe). Check their website out. Amazing pics. Maybe someday:0a32:.
Actually those giant wels catfish are caught in Spain I believe. I just checked and the UK record for them and it is only 62lbs.
here's the host story.
i guess they were caught in italy... sorry for UK confusion... and i guess both of these set world records!! holy fish!
Holy cow! :crazy: Them are some big Wels Cats! Before my time is up on this planet I hope to fish for them bad boys! :cool2:
I would like to have me one of those tied to the end of my line
Imagine burping one of them bad boys?? :cool2:
I bet those were some great fights getting those big fish on shore and on that table too.
thanks for the pics. Those are some serious cats.
