A NEW POLISH RECORD ?????????????? Catfish 260cm and over 100kg in weight ! ???????????? #massivebaits

Published by Simon Nowowiejski Thursday 18 October 2018

[blockquote style=”2″]”I fought the fish for several minutes with the help of professional equipment. After measuring, weighing and a few souvenir photos, the fish returned to the water. There are Polish, if not world records floating in the Rybnik lagoon,” Szymon Nowowiejski told dziennikzachodni.pl[/blockquote].

After taking measurements and souvenir photos, the fish was released. As we can read in various places, the waters of the Rybnik Reservoir are famous for record-breaking specimens. All because of exceptionally warm water near the local power plant.

From a diver’s perspective, the possibility of encountering such a big fish certainly excites the imagination. It should be remembered, however, that catfish can be very aggressive and fiercely defend their habitat against intruders.
