"...died on its way to an outfitter store...When you have a fish this old, this heavy, that has lived in zero gravity its whole life, it just won't tolerate a lot of handling."

Gee, I wonder why -- the guy was handling him so gently -- and wearing gloves.

Re: picture of JG fishing

A catfish that size is a real catch-and-release dilemma. On the one hand, it's an old, old animal, and probably worthless as food. On the other hand, it's a big damn catfish, and hardly a member of an endangered species.

I caught my first trophy-sized largemouth last weekend. ..five plus pounds and as long as my forearm (er, that'd be a cubit, I suppose.) Anyway, I noticed it was a gravid female with the characteristic egg sac bulge and I turned 'er loose.

That catfish would have eaten my largemouth without so much as a passing belch.

Now, have you all seen the pictures of Hogzilla?

So, it was "only" 800 pounds?

That puts Hawaii's feral pigs into a new & scary perspective.

Re: picture of JG fishing

I have caught 1000s of catfish. Biggest was 5 lbs. An odd
thing. That fish was caught not too far from where I live and the
previous world record was caught almost in sight of our Texas
condo, only about a year ago. Anyway, pretty sad it died. My wife
topped my all time best catfish last summer. We kept the fish.
Wish now we'd turned him loose. The small ones are much better
eating.
