Yeah, you’re gonna wanna watch this one.
Never say that fishermen don’t do whatever it takes to fool, catch, and land every fish they can.
Here’s a guy that takes all that to the extreme when you see him climb down some kind of strap and get his feet wet to save his buddy’s catfish!
By the way, it’s a HUGE catfish.
It seems that this is in Italy somewhere by the language of the man in the video and according to some of the comments.
Most likely it is a wels catfish which is the largest freshwater fish in Europe. Since they can grow up to 15 feet long and weigh up to 500 pounds, the one is this video is probably just a baby.
The fun part was watching the guy climb down to make the retrieval and drag that big boy into the storm sewer tunnel. Did he ever make it out alive? Did he release the fish or get eaten by it?
It looked like he could have fit his whole head in that things mouth!
