Default Record Catfish caught in Mississippi river in ILLinois

Ever hear about the Giant European Wels catfish? These have grown as large as 600 lbs. or more. With some nearing 1000 lbs. a possibility.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif[/img]

I've seen some stories and pictures of Northerns like that in an old "In-Fisherman" magazine that I still have somewhere. Big European Northern Pike.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif[/img]

I know what your saying. There are some monster bucks in Texas, but they are small in body. I have noticed that they are getting bigger in the body though, seems the suppliments are not only producing large racks, but also good sized deer as a whole. I think my dream hunt for whitetail would be up in Canada some where. I just dont like to hunt deer in weather that requires t-shirts. Temps around 20-30 are what I like to hunt in.

Maybe we can get someone on here to invite us up to hunt, then we can return the favor. That would be sweet!
