Huge 194lb albino cat is caught

Albino catfish are rare beasts – especially when they weigh in at a colossal 194lb.

This impressive specimen, caught by Sheffield angler Chris Grimmer (holding the head of the fish) from Spain’s river Segre is one of the biggest ever recorded from the waterway, falling for the 35-year-old’s bait during a frantic week-long fishing trip with Cat Master Tours.

The big cat, with distinctive black, markings took Chris’ hookbait of five 22mm halibut pellets hairrigged to a size 6/0 hook – an approach which also accounted for other cats of 172lb, 143lb, three 90lb specimens and a couple of 70lb fish - five days into the seven day session, and ‘fought like hell’.
