You may think trophy catfishing is a distinctly American activity, but across the Atlantic there's a group of anglers who share a similar passion for their own species of whiskered freshwater monster. I'm talking about cats so big, hundred-pounders are routine. Cats so powerful anglers come from all over the globe for a chance to catch one. This is the story of the Wels catfish.
NOTE: Most of these photos come to us via Wels guide Colin Bunn of CatMaster Tours. These are his clients and though we don't know exactly who they are (or why so many go so scantily attired), you've got to see the size of these cats to believe it.
