Well in 2005 the World's largest fish was caught in Thailand and it always goes through my mind as to what do these people feel once they catch a Whopper like that lol? It must be quite an excilerating experience and at 646 pounds that is truly one heavywight champion. I would have loved to have been there to see it.
here is an excerpt on the story!
I am wondering what they did with it after? Did they disect the thing or put it back into the ocean? Well looking like they are just fish observers, they might have put it back where it came from. A wonderful and humungous Catfish for all to see in the pic!
