I saw that in the 'MONTEVIDEO AMERICAN NEWS', as an April Fools joke.

That would be a Wels Cat caught in Italy. I know there was an emailing floating around saying that that fish was the Texas Record Blue..........it's not. It's a Wels from Europe.

My personal best and caught on a live eel. It's very fat and had quite a number of bite marks from other catfish!
The length was 215 cm (6.55 ft) and the weight was 85 kg (187.4 lbs). The photo was taken by Yuri Grisendi who helped me also to weight the fish.

Those Wels are amazing cats.......they'd make you almost want to quit catching those sissy Flatheads..........maybe.

As far as the Walleye looking thing.........isn't that a Zander? Those are dogs. Worked a sportshow in Italy a few years back and just seeing the techniques for those fish was cool. Guys throw the muskie/pike size Salmo sliders for them. smile.gif

YES I BELIEVE IT TO BE A ZANDER. NOTICE NO WHITE TIP ON THE TAIL AND NO BLACK DOT AT THE BOTTOM END OF THE DORSEL FIN. PLUS ZANDERS GROW TO MUCH LARGER SIZES THAN WALLEYES.

If you want to catch a Zander you dont have to travel to jolly ole Egland. Just North Dakota. There is a lake there....I dont remember which one..but I'm sure an internet search would yeild something...if not try contacting In-fisherman..that's where I read the story. They introduced them..then decided to stop...but a few have remained and continue to proliferate..someone catches one every year..or so the stories go. I would like to get one of them Wels kitties wonder what that would be like.
