I thought the rod was gonna snap for a couple of minutes. That takes some serious cahones to go for those kind of bucket mouths. Awesome video. I'd better go get a plane ticket! ;D ;D ;D

thats some serious catfish wonder what getting stuck by one of those would do paralize you

I have a friend who lives 7 hours from that river in Spain, if i EVER get up on some money i'm taking a trip there. I asked one of the guys who fishs for them how good the area was where my friend lives and he says the area my friend lives close to gets very little fishing pressure and there are huge cats in there, AH one day maybe..

Cool video! I don't know if I'd take a swim with it afterwards like he did. Yeeeeah, I think I'm good!

Jeez that was a hell of a video. I thought his pole was going to snap too! Makes me wonder how much his stomach hurt after that.

02-24-2006, 08:11 PM
i thought the same thing, i thouhgt that pole was going to snap in half, nice video

02-24-2006, 10:38 PM
Nice. why didnt you tell me to look at that today while fishing ::) I wouldnt have let it go that way but it makes for a great video ;)

WOW...now that was a hog!!!

I wonder what pound test that fella was using. I've seen people use saltwater rods with roller eyes like that in the south.

03-31-2006, 11:22 PM
OMFG!!!! that puts a whole new meaning to swimming with the fishes.

Thats crazy. I can't belive how strong his pole and line were. He was really crankin on that cat.

04-03-2006, 07:50 PM
