Monster Catfish Reeled in Near Bella Vista


A man near Bella Vista reeled in a monster fish today!

Jeff Wetzel caught this catfish on Loch Lomond this morning. Wetzel said it took him 30 minutes of fighting with this fish to reel it in.

Wetzel says he was using cut bluegill for his bait. Once Wetzel and his buddies hauled the fish in, they had to use a bathroom scale to weigh it because the ranger’s station didn’t have a scale big enough.

The fish weighed at an amazing 53 pounds and measured at 46 inches!
