    It is for real. It is some sort of english or european catfish, I don't remember which. Supposedly they can grow to hundreds of pounds.

    That's an awsome fish. I've heard there are catfish like that in deep water lakes like Powel near the dam.

    I caught a 52" clear muskie (non hybrid) in 1997. Wieghed a bit over 32 pounds.

    Not as fat, by any means, at that cat but the teeth were intimidating. Not anymore though since it's mounted on a piece of stained oak hanging on the wall of a good friend's bar and restaurant way up North from here.

    I have seen some big catfish but none this big. There is a bait shop about 30 miles or so from my house that has pics of flatheads that they have caught out of the river and some of those top 100 lbs.
