A 20 year old girl in the UK hooked a 7 foot long record breaking catfish which outweighed her on the scale at a massive 120 pounds. This officially becomes the biggest freshwater fish ever caught by a female in the United Kingdom. The previous record was just under 70 pounds.
While fishing with her boyfriend, Lee Pollard who is an excellent angler, Kirstin Hole wasn’t able to reel in the fish all alone. With the help of her boyfriend Lee they were able to get the beast out of the water which was a battle in itself.
The catfish was so big that they couldn’t use their normal scale which maxed out at 6 feet in length. Another fisherman that was close by was able to lend them a hand. They used his scale and got the official measurements of the massive freshwater fish.
