If it is still alive I am not sure that I would want to be putting my hand in its mouth.

Halibuts are HUGE and they're bottom feeders, aren't they? Anyway, that catfish is tooooo big to look appetizing. It looks prehistoric!

From somebody who had the distinct pleasure of hooking and landing a 78 pound 'mud cat' a few years ago....I can let you all know that bringing in one of those is much like dragging in a boulder that tries, on occasion, to drag you the OTHER way! Oh...I landed mine...weighed it....and released it.

Once catfish get to be that size they don't taste particularly good, by the way.

When you start thinking about BIG catfish then our local (USA) types are mere midgets....THESE are big catfish!!!
