Ordinary Italian fisherman Roberto Godi caught an unbelievable catfish when he went fishing on the River Po at Mantova, northern Italy.
This monster is 8.2 feet long. It weighs about 250 lbs. This gigantic catfish has become the largest freshwater fish caught in Europe. It took Roberto about 45 minutes to reel in the fish. The fisherman was lucky as the huge fish was trying to throw him into the water, but didn’t manage it as other fishermen helped to lift the beast on a weighing frame. After breaking the world record, Godi released the catfish back into the water safe and well.
