Monster catfish - Bundy

Fished one of the local dams this weekend, chasing some bass, and caught a monster catfish. I have caught many big catfish before but this is a new PB for me. Fishing with 8lb mono it was a battle to get it in before it buries itself in the weed. Just for interest sake does anybody know how big these things grow? A quick Google search indicate that they grow to 60 cm, in which case this one must have been up there... Certainly had a lot of weight to it.
One of the better bass of the morning caught on a surface lure.

Big strong fish! I've caught them over 60cm and mistaken the early fight for Barra. They grow bigger and know of them hitting more like a metre if they get into the ocean.

Wow that's huge. When we lived on the Rio Grande in SE Texas when you went to a fish fry at the clubs on the river we used to pay $12 each for popcorn fish, which was an endless basket that was refilled until told to stop, the fish was catfish and tasted nice especially the more beers you had. Hee hee Les :lol:

I'll need more than a few beers to lay into catfish, maybe a couple bottles of Bundy rum should make them palatable..
