260lbs Catfish

260lb catfish caught in Italy

By Angling Times

Fish Catches

13 June 2014 10:09

This colossal catfish was caught by Italian angler Dino Ferrari from the River Po Northern Italy.

It measured an incredible 8.6 feet (259cm) and weighed a staggering 260lb making it one of the largest catfish ever landed in Europe. Dino, who fishes for German tackle firm Team Sportex, has plenty of experience of fishing the Po having landed numerous other cats over 200lb from the waterway. However, the huge fish is still some way short of the official IGFA record, which is a whopping 297lb 9oz cat landed by Hungarian angler Zsedely Attila back in 2011.
