The 100kg clock didn't go any further, so it must be over 100 kg.
This giant one was caught it in the river Po on "a mort manie" rod.
The fight took 3 hours!

28-02-2005 SOCHASIRE 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.

06-02-2011 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?
