  1. Check out this 140 Lb record cat From Georgia I'm told. Wonder if they caught it on a line or "noodled it"

    That is an old pic. It was not even caught in the US. I think those are called Wels catfish from Europe.

    LOL......I wish i had a $1 for everytime someone sent me that stupid pic. claiming it to be a cat caught in the USA.....idiots!

    The guys are correct, its a Wels catfish from Europe..my best guess is from a River in Spain like the Ebro.
    And that one is not a monster, i think the current world record is 230-240 lbs.

    Ive got a tons of catfish pics. from around the world, the Wels is a favorite, but i still think the South American cats are the #1 in the world...plus there are a LOT of BIG cat species down there.


    That pic. just goes to show ya....dont believe everything you read on the net.
