    snow Special Fishes

    What lurked in the depths, now is going to haunt your boat.
    Be careful what you hook up. Aside from picking some vicious industrial garbage, you can bring to the surface some strange and unmentionable things. Most fishermen will happily brag about an extraordinary big fish (and we'll show plenty of those in this article). But sometimes the catch is so bizarre, that they'd rather try to forget it over a drink or two.

    "Larger than life" (but hopefully still real) catches

    We all know that the size of our largest catch is only limited to how wide we can stretch our arms, and how gullible your friends are. A picture would usually prove your story, if you don't mind occasional "this is Photoshop... I can tell by the pixels" comments:

    Catfish the size of a small car? Well, almost.

    "The World's Largest Catfish" catch happened in Thailand:
    (more info - that is a 646-pound Mekong giant catfish)

    This is, by the way, officially the largest freshwater fish ever caught..

    Here are more record catfish catches:

    "Fish in Distress" Needs Saving

    According to this source an eight-inch basketball was stuck in a catfish' mouth - the 50-pound fish could not swim or dive, so Wichita resident Bill Driver used a knife to poke the hole in the ball and deflate it:

    Goliath Tiger Fish:

    Want to catch the wickedest-looking fish, and snap pictures that are going to be forwarded by scared grandmas all over the internet?

    Go to the Congo River (or Lake Tanganyika in Central Africa) and try to catch a Goliath Tiger Fish (aka African tigerfish or giant tigerfish), or Hydrocynus Goliath. Just make sure not to go swimming in these waters, as this kind of fish indeed is known to attack humans (the only freshwater fish in Africa that would do so) -

    There is plenty of toothy fish in these waters:

    The Ugliest of the Bunch

    These live mostly at significant depths, so it's highly unlikely that they will be fished out. But if you do, then - don't make a false move in your boat:

    Fish Tales

    This fish was given the opportunity to speak out (as part of 1945 research). Must be some hair-raising tales, judging by how scared it looks.
