195 ON THE RICHTER SCALE!!

 

The Catfish of the lower Ebro continue to get tantalisingly close to the 200lb mark, and the latest near miss has arrived on 9th July 2015 with first time visitor Ron Richter landing a goliath fish of 195lb – our second biggest to date.

The monster fish was hooked close to Amposta town and accepted a small mullet fished in around 17ft of water. The fight was a sensational tussle, with powerful runs and great stamina exhibited by the giant Catfish in warm water conditions.

Measuring close to 8ft long and carrying weight all the way down to the tail, it’s a great shame the fish wasn’t carrying more girth or it would surely have been the lower Ebro’s first long awaited 200!

A fuller gut would surely have seen her go 200lb!
