claude.valette Thierry Christians, of Belgium, spent its vacations in side sea to 2 hours of Mequinenza.
Knowing the reputation of the corner, and wanting to tempt the experience "silurid" once, he/it had contacted me previously to fish an evening.
Thing made, and record of the camp 2001.
2,30m and 73kg.
The small anecdote, is that we had in the boat, to that moment, this fish and another of 2,15m. (for Michel Rodriguez!)
The boat became suddenly a true rink, with more of 130 kg. of fish, and us 3! Epic! .

The fish: 2,26m.

claude.valette The "biggest" and "largest" that I never saw.
2,19 meters but enormous. We had to be 2 to hoist the fish on board.
The stomach of this fish was diforme, bacause: after some hours, it regurgitated a carp of a good ten kg begun hardly has be digest! Don't tempt to use the quick of this size!
olivier Here is the photo of the vigorous silurid, that non happy to break us a cane, made Claude Valette take a small bath of midnight.
We still laugh on it!
Even though at the time I had rather a big fright because of the numerous branches showing on the surface.
