This compilation captures the excitement of fishing for big blue catfish.
There’s not many fish that can fight as hard as a big catfish and this short video compilation proves that. This teaser is said to feature the largest catfish ever caught on film in North America, but there are some other monsters in this video, too.
Those are some really chunky cats! Catfish, especially ones this fat, look pretty lazy and tame, but they are some of the hardest fighting fish you can encounter. I’ve never had the pleasure of fishing for blues like the ones in this video, but I was pleasantly surprised the first time I caught a channel cat when I saw how hard they fight.
While the fight itself is exciting, the moment one of these monsters takes the bait makes for heart-racing moment too. You’ve just have to love the way these blues nearly yank the rods out of their holders.
While fishing for catfish can be more of a waiting game than fishing for other species, this video proves the exciting action when you get one on the line is worth the wait!
