Caught in Italy and posted on I-Net 2 days ago:



It was big enough that the angler who caught it could slide his whole body into its mouth:



"Italian fisherman Dino Ferrari landed what could potentially be a world record wels catfish in Italy’s Po Delta. Ferrari’s fish measured an incredible 8.7 feet in length and weighed 280 pounds. The current weight record for a wels catfish is over 300 pounds, but according to the Daily Mirror, Ferrari may have set a record for the largest catfish to be caught with a rod and reel."

Here’s photographic proof that this thing could just swallow an adult if it wanted to. It’s enormous

Yep - that's a pretty serious fish. It would have been a real task to get that in a boat for a fish pic.
