The Albino Wels Catfish

It’s very difficult to catch an albino Wels catfish. Imagine the excitement of these fishermen when they finally caught one, after years of searching. This enormous albino Wels catfish has a weight of over 206 pounds with a stretched measurement of 8 feet long. This catch beat the previous mark by 10 pounds! Special pellets were used as bait with a 1,800 feet super strength fishing pole. The fish was so strong, it literally pulled its catcher in 4 separate occasions.
