Guys!
Reading the above made me burst in laughter.
I am Lucas van der Geest and I caught this fish in the river Po, somewhere south of the city of Mantova (Italy).
I myself live in Holland (near Amsterdam) and drive to Italy (an 18 hour drive) two or three times a year to fish for these big cats.
I caught this fish of 85 kilo a couple of days after I caught a 70 kilo cat. It is my personal best. Allthough this cat is quite a big one, I can assure you that bigger ones have been caught there (over 100 kilo). For instance by Yuri Grisendi, who happens to be an Italian friend of mine. Yuri is the chairman of the Italian Catfish Society (GSI / http://www.grupposiluro.it). I myself am the chairman of the Dutch Catfish Society (MSG / http://www.meervalstudiegroep.com). I have written three books about this catfish.
During the whole month of July I am working there as a (catfish) guide, so to all you yanks ;-) : why don't you fly to Milano? I will pick you up and after a two hour drive, you'll be fishing in Europe's most notorious catfish water!
This fish being the Texas state record is bullshit (excuse the language). I have never even been in the States and I very much doubt that this type of (cat)fish exist in the States. It's latin name is Silurus Glanis.
Hope this will clearify a lot of the nonsense told about this fish.

Yes, there are catfish in the Danube, so your grandfather could very well have told you the truth!

The guy on the left is called Wil Tomey and the guy at the right is called Jacques Schouten, they are both from Holland. Actually, quit a few people have heared of this fish in Holland, especially since Jacques published about it in his book and in popular magazines.
Greetings
