    Anyone watch River Monsters last night? They were out catching Wels Cats in Spain on the Ebro River... I heard that those things get big but...:crazy:!! The average size he was catching was 140-160 lbs! One of them swam up to the shore and just sat there looking him. He threw a stone at it to try to see if it would get scared off and it just sat there like "what ever!" I would love to hook into one of those giants!

    They seem to be very aggressive and not afraid of anything.

    Does the clonk really work like that?

    I saw it too, it'd be pretty wild to hook into a 160lb fish. Especially in fresh water...there aren't too many opportunities for that.
