05-05-2005 lots of great fish but why do you not use an unhooking mat like Alberto? Get one, they are great: O) carpboy
05-05-2005 i like that you tell the size of the fish but in order for us viewers we need to be able to see the fish in order to fully understand that size king
03-05-2005 Makes me want to fish for catfish. Nice fish. bullfrog
26-04-2005 Life is like a coin you can spend it any way you like but you can only spend it once. strikeking
22-04-2005 Normally we do not accept "horror" pictures, but this photo can be used in "educational" purposes too: It is necessary to be very careful with triple hooks. webmaster
21-04-2005 That is a truly awesome fish!! I would also like to say that I am embarassed by what some of the other Americans have said here, and pity their ignorance. Kentucky, USA kittykiller
18-04-2005 Nice catch Lucas! To all you people still doubting the real story all you need to do is check out sites like http://www.grupposiluro.it/ and http://www.meervalstudiegroep.com/. Also, a message to REDNECK.IN.TEXAS: Lay off dude, you're just jealous, nice catches with your 3 26 pounders, but this fish alone still weighs much more than all of yours put together! I don't really think it's right to even compare the two, because one is a Blue and the other is a Wels, so it would be kind of like if I went and caught a Peacock bass and tried to compare it to a Smallmouth, but if you Texan's want to be that way, here's news: A cattie that size has never and will never be caught in Texas! (no offense to Texan's in general, I am talking to people like REDNECK.IN.TEXAS and the other {moderated} out there who can't admit a fact). dodgerulz
15-04-2005 to FUNNYLOOKINGOWL: for age...: i could say this fish is near 20 years old for taste...: too old for good tasting meat remarks...: this fish was released after capture & photos webmaster
15-04-2005 Hey, is anyone going to answer my question (see above) as to the age & taste of these catfish? funnylookingowl
12-04-2005 holy crap how did you catch that catfish i love to fish and ive never even seen a fish that big. tk
10-04-2005 We are for catch & release program... webmaster
09-04-2005 good god folks, THERES NO DORSAL FIN! no cat in the states are without it! in kentucky shellcracker2
04-04-2005 I have absolutely no idea how I got to this website but it is interesting stuff even though I know nothing about fishing. I was wondering... How old would a catfish this size be? Also I wouldn't condone anyone eating anything that's survived long enough to grow this big, but if one was to eat a catfish of this size, would it taste the same as a smaller catfish? funnylookingowl
28-03-2005 Lucas, I am an editor for a USA-based fishing magazine and would like to include a photo of you such as this one showing the top-set eyes and underbite that the wels cats exhibit for an upcoming piece on klonking. The piece will deal with some american catfishermen and their klonking experiences as well as a printed link to the predastore.nl site where fishermen may purchase a qualiy example of a klonk. Please contact me at your earliest convience as the deadline for the photos is approaching. You are welcome to review the article for authenticity. Good Fishing, Tim Scott mailto:tim@procats.com tim.scott
09-03-2005 It truly amazes me that this started over a year ago, and after all this time it is still being passed around as a "new" item. Lucas - this really is an awesome catch, My husband loves to take our two children fishing here in GA - to them a 5lb trout might as well be 100lbs! - Their Faces are just as ecstatic regardless of how big it is. That being said - I can only imagine the look and overall excitement on YOUR face when you brought this big cat in - after all - aren't we all just big kids? GREAT JOB!! cr8zy.gir
08-03-2005 All I can say is WOW! Living in SA I have seen some cat fish which I thought was big! But nothing compared to waht I just saw on here. I came accross this article via http://www.urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_slideshow45a.htm - at 1st I didnt beleive it... but all I can say, this is one fish story I believe! wolfie
28-02-2005 to all country-men of SOCHASIRE: http://xvella.free.fr/html/eng/photos/000006/00000690.htm ;-) webmaster webmaster
28-02-2005 A truly stunning achievement Gaetano. My father was an avid and excellent fisherman and in his travels with the US Navy had travelled and fished in many countries. I'm sure he would have been deeply impressed. I know it takes more than just luck to land the big ones. Excellent job. Was your Wels a Catch-and-Release? BTW, I and many fellow yanks DO know where Italy and the Po River are. I apologize for my country-man. sochasire
27-02-2005 Being an advid catfisherman from the U.S. for a while now, I love the species. My biggest yet was a 58 lbs blue cat in the James river. All of mine have been released back to wear they came with no harm done. Thanks for an awesome website! wade
24-02-2005 I think you are right, we have looked at our old photos and we have caught this fish also!! The picture is in the fiction gallery! stevie.d
22-02-2005 Lucas says he practices catch and release. Since that fish is about average for the Harpeth River near Nashville, Tenn. I don't blame him for putting it back. I'd be ashamed to talk about it, too. donald.dozier
22-02-2005 holy **** that is huge and not to mention albino, biggest catfish I ever saw and i never knew catfish could be albino. fisher
22-02-2005 Hi, Lucas this time around I want to correct my first comment. I meant to say if folks respond negatively, I would not respond. So Lucas when are you going to take your trip this year? I would love to meet you, see that part of the world and try to hook one of those wels cats. If you ever get into texas make it known on your site, and I'll tell you where to go to catch some big ole blues! baldheadedbilly

22-02-2005 Hello, I would very much like to come in contact with Jakub Vágner, becauce my fathers biggest dream is to catch a catfish especially in The Czech Republich. But we really don't know anything about places to go, and that is why we very much like to come in contact with Jakub Vágner. Our e-mail is: mailto:nicolemeinz@hotmail.com nicole.meinz

03-02-2005 Hello world. I grew up in south Louisiana, "geaux tigers"! and now live in Texas. I love to fish and target big lake cats. I had the pleasure of meeting a true urban hero. His name is Cody Mullenix, he caught splash, the world record blue cat caught on rod and reel. I saw the wonderfull creature with my own eyes, took some pictures of her and took one with the man himself. He is a quiet regular guy and is very humble. If you want to see splash, you can go to http://www.procats.com and there is a very good write up on the truth of this catch. The fish is amazing and the story is too. I walked up to Cody and said, "hi hero!". He just kinda grinned and said "man I'm just a guy that caught a big fish." I said you are a hero to the catch and release world, and you are surely a hero to splash. I agree that this website is one of sharing a passion not one to argue, so if you respond to any of these friendly guys or gals on this site, dont even think for a moment that i will even consider responding. You guys across the world from us here, more power to you and thank you for sharing your stories and pictures. I love learning about the different species of cats world wide. I've seen 80 pounders before, but splash was the biggest. God bless the world, and yourself.!!! baldheadedbilly
03-02-2005 (o|o) see the hook & worm in the mouth! wxcvbn
01-02-2005 Wow! Thats a nice fish! He lookis kinda dirty to me! I hope your on the catch and release program! ctown79
27-01-2005 I have only one question... Why in the world would you ever kill and eat that fish, he was a monument, a "god of fish" of sorts.. he should have been kept alive and shown off! but none the less, congrats on the catch. d-mama
26-01-2005 How did you catch that fish? It seems as if it would be wiggling and writhing to get free. How do you get it to stay still to hold it? There are some amazing forms of life on this planet! Fisherpeople included. ml
22-01-2005 Frank, I love catchin 26 LB. blues, but I pray I never do it on one of my 12 Ft. crappie rods LOL! Lucas, very nice fish by the way, I am curious about what method you use for fish of that magnitude. Is a truot line the method of choice or a throw line, stump hook? Here in North Texas I've taken several nice cats in the 60# range with a short line in conjunction with a 2 Ft. rubber section (to avoid break offs) tied to a stump near the river channel. Usualy anywhere you have a depth of around 12 Ft. close to deeper water (25-35 Ft.) Bait of choice is usually Carp or small Pearch. Also I would like to add that I live about 35 miles south of Lake Texoma and the state record 121.5 lb. "Texoma High Fin Blue" was caught on a light rod and reel with 20 Lb. line. Pretty amazing I thought! But anyway next time you fishermen of the world are in the NE Texas area around the Sulpher River in January stop and get yourself some Crappie jigs and spend the day jerkin out 16 inch Crappie as fast as you can get em in the boat lol! Now thats Big fun in Texas L8r tig! tig
19-01-2005 Nice fish, Lucas. What did you use for bait, a baby?; ) We have a saying here in Texas... Eat... Sleep... Go Fishing" Words to live by. mrmyke709
21-12-2004 Lucas, You're an animal. Great fish! I caught a 26 pound blue last spring with 8# test and a light spinning rig while fishing for crappie. Took about 20 minutes to land that one so yours had to be a hoot! Great job from Houston. frank
13-12-2004 Back in '91, I was part of canoe trip that went the distance of the Danube... To the person that enquired about Danube catfish - well we didn't do any fishing but we did see a couple of local fisherman (in Serbia, then Yugoslavia) with a couple of 50 plus pound Cats (net caught) and then farther down the river (just past Belgrade) we cruised up on a big, big cat who was cruising topside. We startled it, it scared the crap out of us. It wasn't as big as this latest photo but it was still a very big fish. Ya, your Grandpappy was telling you the truth- big, big Cats in the Danube. fat.gordie
22-11-2004 Hi! CEDRIC, that is an excellent catch congratulations! Now i have a question for you. I am working as a consultant for a Public Aquarium in Puerto Rico. We just finish with the wish list for the fresh water specie and the "Wels Catfish" is in our list for the educational exhibit. We are looking for some one that can help us to get incontact with any private or goverment agencie that could collect small speciments of (Wels Catfish / Silurus glanis). Please if you have any info or any one els please contact me at: mailto:harrydruiz@msn.com. Thank for your time and Well Done! Cordially: Harry Ruiz harry.ruiz
19-11-2004 Firstly congrats to the captors of the fish, i am from south of India. I myself have caught a catfish or two, but i must say i have never seen a catfish larger than 2 feet (at my place) so i am curoius to know if there are such kind of monstrous catfish in indian rivers, cud anyone enlighten me to this quirey of mine. manjunath
02-11-2004 This is so cool, my son is using this shot of the BIG fish for his report for school! He is on the A/B honor roll at school (5th grade). I know he will get an A+. Thank you both for sharing such a neat day on the lake! He hopes on day to catch his own this size! A grateful mom. sparkplug
22-10-2004 All I have to say is "WOW" to the taller guy on the right in the pic. What a hottie. I also noticed, while looking at other pics of guys with their big fish, that it must be a pre-requisite that you be a hot guy to catch the big fish. Throw me a line!! Congrats Lucas on the big fish. lynn
