Whatever, SOUTHERNYANKER. The fish in the pic is clearly not a blue. It's not a channel. It's not a flathead. So, which species of Texas catfish looks identical to the european wels catfish?

It goes to show that people will steal just about anything. I know someone who "personally knows" these anglers also. I was more than happy to find this site with a copyrighted photo attached. I am not a legal person, but I would think that in order to obtain a copyright you would need the offical photo. If this fish had come out of the Lake Texoma, which my husband fishes as often as possible, the state record would not still be listed as only a 121 lb. blue cat. Compare the size of the two fish in previous links, they are not even close to a 20 lb difference (140 vs 121). Love america, but not too proud of us at the moment.

Okay, I am from Texas, and yes, we have big fish down here. There is a possibility that we even have somme that big. That catfish in the picture though, is not a breed from Texas. All the cocky americans who want to argue it need to get over themselves. If you take that much offense to that, go out and try to break the record instead of fighting with someone over it.

I have cought 35 inch cat fish be for and thought they were wales ontil I got them up on to shore. I could just not enven begen to think of what kind of fite this cat would put up. That cat ways 45 more ponds than me and I would be a little skidish to get him on my line.

I would not stick my head in there
Andy, Wels Catfish ANDY
I am surprised that this fish is classified as a true mandarin considering that the head and part of the back is normal catfish colouration. Fantastic fish however. I will submit photo of a true mandarin caught yesterday as soon as the photos are processed.

I too am from Texas and agree that we got some BIG cats here, but none that look like that if you know your fish and know the area you know that that cat never came from Texas. I think RED NECK IN TEXAS is a little boy talking all that HONKY on here to make himself look big and bad, giving people the wrong idea of us folks here in Texas. People like him need to GROW UP and be a MAN not a little BOY!!!! By the way guys congrats on your cat he a nice catch!!!!

That's a big cat. Recently reported was a 295 kgs (yes KGS!) catfish caught in Thailand. Seeing is believing - haven't seen photo yet. Add salt to this unconfirmed report.
Webmaster, Wels Catfish WEBMASTER
The size conversion system from centimeters to feet was based on Imperial units (UK) only. From now on, we have also the size in FT/US for our visitors from US Foot Survey zone. More info about conversion systen can be found in these pages:

Finally the truth.
Thank you for posting this site especially with the links to all the other huge catfish. I have been amazed by the site and the look of sheer joy portrayed on all the angler's faces. I believe the world record was recently set by a Mekong giant catfish of 646 lbs or 300kg in Thailand.

Surprised at the ignorance here. Do your homework and learn about catfish specimens/species much bigger. or

How could you kill such a beautiful creature????
Helmister, Wels Catfish HELMISTER
I hope nobody catches you and displays you as a trophy
Stephen Buss, Wels Catfish STEPHEN.BUSS
All fish are returned in the same condition they are photographed.
Stephen Buss, Wels Catfish STEPHEN.BUSS
This photo was the only trophy, no dorsals trimmed, no whiskers cut or taken, no stuffed heads for my wall. I Catch and Release & I sleep in peace. I educate best practice, fish safety and return and would never kill such a creature.

Nice sandy colour

Riba-roja is in Catalonia, and Catalonia is not Spain. Please keep this always in mind.

Please do not hold catfish up by their gill covers!!!!! How can you expect a fish to hold its whole body weight with its gills ? How about I hold you up by your ears ?!!!!!

Congratulations on your monster hall.
Madmax, Wels Catfish MADMAX
Very nice catfisch. It is Petit Rhone 2006 ?
Nos, Wels Catfish NOS
I am from Illinois in the United States. This is truly an amazing catch. My personal record is a 31 lb Channel. The fish in the pic resembles a channel (look at the spotting) more than a blue (as so many keep stating). I have witnessed American cats near the size of this one, but they were not caught. They lie at the base of the local dam feeding on all the fish that get sucked through the flow gates. You can view them through the windows at the base within the dam. Once again Great Job Lucas!! Thanks for sharing your catch with all of us Stateside.

Sir, your catfish is (was) adorable. I keep kitty fish as pets, and had I the chance, I would have dug a big pond in my backyard and named yours Julio.

Hi guys; this thread looks a little dead, but I couldn't resist a comment. This beastie definitely came from the Po in Italy and was definitely a wels cat. I've been catching them for a decade and know what they look like... It's a great fish but not the biggest I've seen from the Po. Check out these guys - they're a guiding service who operate on the Ebro in Spain. These days it's very possible to get fish in excess of 200 pounds!! Bigger fish swim in the Po, but you won't beat the Ebro for numbers and average weight. I had 46 fish in 4 days fishing on the Ebro. 30 of them were over 100 pounds! Tight lines.
Mackcat, Wels Catfish MACKCAT
Was happy to read that Lucas returns fish to the water. Any fish old enough & able to last long enough to get this size, should be allowed to keep on growing. Wish everyone would do the same.
Brian, Wels Catfish BRIAN
Could someone please tell me Jakubs current email address please. The one quoted does not work.

Mrcarter468, Wels Catfish MRCARTER468
I have the original article on this catch. The fish in the photo was killed, and dragged from the dam locks of Carlyle Lake in Illinois. It was estimated, by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to be about 29yrs. old. The two men are divers, not fishermen.
Webmaster, Wels Catfish WEBMASTER
Hi MRCARTER468. Thank you so much for this big information. I'll forward your message to Lucas. I'm shure he didn't know that in fact he is a diver of "U.S. Army Corps of Engineers". Best regards to you and take care.
Vicstress, Wels Catfish VICSTRESS
So what do you boys do with these big cat fish, I hope you throw them back in, how long does it take for one of these fish to get this big?
Ulli04, Wels Catfish ULLI04
Congratulations Dear Bruno to this heavy duty Catfish! Very nice!
Andy Morrissy, Wels Catfish ANDY_MORRISSY
Lucas, may i say congratulations on such a wonderful cat, considering my personal best is a 42 pounder, though that was right here in England! for all those who believe that this a in fact a blue catfish i can assure you that your are worng, the tail fin and anal fin are completely different from that of a wels cat, though respectively the heads of both fish are very simular, so for a non-experience angler the mistake is a easy one to make.

Hilarious. I have had a good chuckle this afternoon reading the posts. I think the videos speak for themselves! If anyone still has doubts take a look for crying out loud. Happy fishing!
Marhawkman, Wels Catfish MARHAWKMAN

I was looking at the page of faked pictures and recognized the cat they spliced into Lucas's picture. Riley, not fat but impressively large.

I love the catfish picture! That thing is huge!
Webmaster, Wels Catfish WEBMASTER
Normally we publish photographs NO-KILL only. But in front of this exceptional capture we can make an exception!
Congratulations to the young fisherman for the capture, and cheers to mom who made this fish (is this made of curtains or cloths?)!

Hi. Just leaving my footprint. I was searching the internet for photos of pterodactyls which led to sabertooth cats which led to an underwater photo of a white tiger swimming which looked cool so I searched on "big cats swimming" and came upon the catfish picture and I followed the story and here I am.

What a great website with very nice fish.
Nice article in Cat Connect magazine.
Kind regards,
Spazmid, Wels Catfish SPAZMID
Texas is a good place to catch big catfish, and it's a good place to catch a lot of catfish. We have Channel, Blue, and Flathead catfish, and many lakes with catfish in the 50-100 pound range. I like to catch my limit of Channel cats in the 4-14 pound range and fill the freezer with fillets. I "surf" cast, and use jugs and trotlines. Come on down and have some fun.
Catfishin, Wels Catfish CATFISHIN
My personal best was only 100lbs 16oz blue cat in the beaver lake in Arkansas. There is said to be bigger cats near the dam. Congratulations. And it is said they will introduce the Silurus Glanis to the beaver in the next year or so. Praying they do i wouldlove to catch one of them in 20 or so years.
Scarab, Wels Catfish SCARAB
Lool nice picture!!
Jake The Snake, Wels Catfish JAKE.THE.SNAKE
Top angling, top result, well done.
The Ebro is fantastic but the Po maybe calling for a nice change.
Any advice on good areas to do some ground work?
