New world record Albino catfish

A long battle on the mighty River Ebro ended with Bernie Campbell banking this world record 206lb albino catfish.

The Merseyside angler travelled to the Spanish mecca for his annual trip with his son Gary and decided to leger a huge ball of bait which was made up of five 22mm halibut pellets.

With midnight looming, the action began and although the skip hire manager initially took control, the specimen soon awoke and charged off, almost pulling him in on several occasions.

After 30-minutes it eventually gave up much to the delight of an exhausted Gary.
“I’ve never caught an albino catfish and I was determined to get one this time but I didn’t expect a new world record,” he said.
