    That doesn't look like a catfish? Where are you from? No whiskers on that sucker at all? I love fresh water fishing. Pond right down the street that I catch bass in all the time. Loads of fun.

    Congratulations! It's really an achievement to catch such big fish! How long did the fight last?
    The biggest fish I have ever caught is a 3kg pike.
    By the way, what country is that?

    Oh ye. Nice one. Im not that much into fishing but my m8 talked me into buying a flyfishing set for pike. So i hope catch some fuckers this summer.

    The thailand and that area are great for fishing i seen some documents. When i get there i will definitely want to fish there since in here you can't catch that big ones. Well maybe maximum fishes are some 40lbs salmon.

    That fish is pangasius pangasius, a type of shark catfish. It is also a common aquarium fish but can grow huge in natural habitat. It is also commonly called as yellow tail catfish. Common in asia.

    gr8 catch!!

    When I was a child my father caught a 98 pound yellow op catfish in lake Houston. I the biggest fresh water fish I ever saw.

    Quite an accomplishment, good for you, although in my case it WOULD end up in a frying pan with some hush puppies!

    That's almost a different species than here in the states. Yellow fins? Good thing it's catch and release. Cleaning that thing is like doing an autospy! Happy trails.

    I've never seen a fish that big let alone caught one. I'm probably one of the least successful fishermen around. I have plenty of luck trout fishing on a fly, but for any other fishing I pretty much suck.

    In three years of sea fishing I've only ever caught one mackerel. And I hooked that fucker through his back. He was probably only swimming past. Which is a shame as I only live a 5 minute walk from the sea, but it gets me away from the computer now and again.
