WOW! Sad thing is, they are not even going to eat him Seems like the least you could do, when he finally does get caught.

"After getting an accurate weight of the fish, the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens transported the fish back to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department facility to be put on display."

Not sure, but I think they meant alive in a tank, not mounted on the wall. The pic shows the guys hoisting him over a holding tank.

Since everything is bigger in Texas, hopefully they have a big enough tank for that big 'ol catfish!

It's amazing how a fish can get that big being a bottom feeder!

My local news channel carried this story too.

Well... That is certainly better than stuffing him and not eating him. That would seem sort of disrespectful

This is a misconseption, large cats are often voracious predators. My channel cat took down a dozen rosies in on feeding. It was unbelieveable.
