Man reels in a monster catfish

A man reeled in a monster catfish at a lake in Chachoengsao, Thailand, that measured 210 centimeters long and weighed 170 kilograms. In the video, angler Waris Charoenpakdeethai can be seen landing the catfish, which was nicknamed Muhammad Ali, before placing it a super-sized net. People took turns taking photos with the beast until they released it back into the lake. “People had talked about a large fish in this lake, but it had never been caught, so I never believed the rumors,” Charoenpakdeethai said. “That day there was a bite and I knew straight away it was something strong,” Charoenpakdeethai said. “It took all of my strength and skill to get the fish in. We named him Muhammad Ali because he was like a heavyweight boxer.” “This is the biggest fish I've ever caught. I've never seen one as big and I haven't caught anything like this since.” “I tell the story all of the time. It's a catch I will never forget.” The footage was filmed on October 27, 2017.
