One Big Fish Is Making News, but There Are Many More Out There
Fisherman wowing listeners with tall tales of behemoth catches is a story as old as time. Now, with the help of the Internet, some storytellers can prove it.
And, that’s exactly what Dino Ferrari did after he recently reeled in a 280-pound catfish in Italy’s Po River. Ferrari says he wrestled with the catfish for more than a half hour before he successfully met the beast. He took photos and video with his colossal catch before ultimately releasing the creature back into the river.
The photos and footage are amazing for anglers and web-surfers alike. It’s not everyday you encounter a monster fish … unless you’re Zeb Hogan.
Hogan, a National Geographic explorer and host of the Nat Geo WILD series Monster Fish, will talk about his search for freshwater giants at a National Geographic Live event on March 26 in Washington DC.
While the talk is one-night only, Washington DC tourists and residents can join Hogan on a journey to find and protect the world’s largest freshwater fish at the National Geographic Museum.
