Monster Catfish Caught By Father and Son in a River
Trevor Hart, 70, wrestled with the
fish for 45 minutes before hauling it out of the River Ebro, in Spain, where it weighed in at a staggering 198lb. He caught the fish on a special ‘lad and dad’ fishing trip to Spain organised by his son Nick.
Nick said: ‘My dad has been fishing all his life but the biggest fish he caught before this was a 16-pound pike. He usually fishes in Chesterfield in the local pond.
‘The fish was bigger than my dad. He’s 6 foot and weighs about 60kg but this fish is 90kg. It was very comical really.’
He was looking at the fish as if he’d won the lottery. It was a dream come true.
‘It was really exhausting and he was knackered for the rest of the day. He needed a big sit down and a beer.’
Mechanic Nick of Chesterfield, Derbyshire, said: ‘I used to fish with him a lot in Pike Matches but it’s slowly died off as I’ve got my own family and started my own business.
‘We’d been looking at big fish like this in the Angling Times for a long time and always wanted go but I didn’t have the finances.
‘I thought I’d organise a road trip over there to do some fishing as a way of saying thank you to him.’
