Pending World Record Catfish!

Tim was using 6 lb line and a spinning rod when this giant catfish bit! The fight lasted over an hour with so many drag screaming runs we lost track. Come along and watch the entire fight play out! The fish has been submitted for the Channel Catfish All-Tackle Length Record and is currently pending.

One of the most exciting aspects of fishing is that you never know what's going to bite. Tim was throwing a Neko Rig for bass on light tackle. He was searching for smallmouth when the big cat surprised him.

Quality tackle made all the difference in this fight! There is no doubt that lesser gear would have failed under the strain of the battle. Below is a breakdown of the gear Tim was using when he subdued this monster.

WORLD RECORD CATFISH

Angler Sean Moffett Caught this MASSIVE Channel Catfish on 7/8/17. It is being submitted for the ALL-TACKLE WORLD RECORD for Length. It measures an amazing 83 centimeters (Inside Dimension) and will topple the existing record of 80 centimeters if all goes well with the IGFA Record Application. 

The Most amazing part about this giant catfish is that Sean was fishing for bass at the time of the record catch. He was using a light action spinning rod coupled Keitech Worm. He was only equipped with 10 lb line and the monster fish was in shallow grass. He was in for the battle of his life, lasting nearly 10 minutes! 

Whether you enjoy bass fishing, catfishing, or fishing for bluegill and crappie, a fish of this size is worth stopping and checking out. World record fish are always incredible. The biggest fish in the world of any species is special and this one is nothing short of amazing!
