National Geographic channel Just aired a show about these, and other huge fish.

It was on Sunday Dec. 3rd..And called HOOKED:monster fish.

It was crazy, watching those guys bring in the monster Mekong.
If I remember correctly it was the Mekong shown in the photo.

I just checked, and the show is on again, Dec 5th..So Heads UP!

There is some great video of some guys noodling, for Cats also..
in Case you aren't sure what noodling is..It's where you use your hands as bait, feeling around in the muddy riverbanks until something bites..then you simply grab it, and take it out...LOL

To quote one guy "I got bit many many times, snakes, turtles, scorpions(?), I just dont know why, I guess I just attract 'em" DOH!

That's a huge fish, but the largest catfish ever caught was over 700 pounds, it was in the papers about 2 years ago.

So how did he drag it up? that thing looks like it could pull a man under, and unless they were deep sea fishing on a troller (which I highly doubt, this is a river catfish is it not?) I would bet money this is fake

hi catfish!

the video I saw showed them wrestling it up to shore.
It was caught in a net that they had put out in the river..

China is suppose to have large salmon 40 feet long which can be seen from the sky. Don't know how true it is because I don't think theres any pics.

Amazing stuff. Though, I based my theory on my experience with fishing (which is limited). That thing is about the size of my boat

When I was visiting a relative in Kelowna B.C. she was telling me that the bridge that spands the Okanagan was delayed construction during the time it was being built because some of the divers that were filling in the concrete supports at the lakebed quit because they were freaked out by the large fish that came within feet of them. The divers claim there were catfish over 8 feet long in large schools. The funny thing is that there is supposed to be a lake monster in the okanagan called Ogopogo (sorta like Loch ness) anyways i think people were just seeing huge katfish come to the surface

Actually, I think most every region in the U.S. has an urban myth of
divers doing something mundane and encountering giant fish ( usually
catfish ) of some sort.
Most of these myths say the fish could swallow a man whole, or was the
size of a V-Dub.

My mythological 2 cent,
