Years ago, a person drowned in the Ohio river, I remember seeing the divers come out of the water, say "I'm not going back in there, there's catfish as big as a Volkswagen".

We caught a bunch of 40+ pound fish in the river. Me and my grandfather used to dynamite fish there about once a month.

Back around the mid 90,s my neighbors had caught a catfish at 140lbs. I don't think this is close to the biggest but it's the biggest I've ever seen

I do SAR. I have suba dived the Ohio River a lot of times. I have never seen anything but very small fish and my goggles are magnified. I am not saying these big fish do not exist, but I have never seen one.
I wish I would.
