Alessandro Biancardi, a staff member of Madcat Italia, the catfishing brand of D.A.M Germany, could not believe his eyes when he caught a huge catfish in the waters of Italy’s longest river, the Po.
The fish, measuring over six feet, was caught by Biancardi after 40 exhausting minutes of trying.
“Guys, this is a Guinness World Record. I never expected to be able to make a catch like this solo.” he said.
After photos and measurements were taken, the giant catfish was put back into the river.
“Now I release this beautiful fish”, Biancardi said in the video, giving a little caress to the monstrous fish, before letting him swim free.
