Head on down anywhere in the southern states of the US, and you’ll come across a great many who love eating a good catfish. But this colossal catfish was hauled from the Rhone River in France. Here we see a 5 foot long and 250 lb. catfish, which henceforth should be called Billy to give this beast a sufficiently endearing name.

Billy struggles with the enemy combatants in the boat for a solid 5 minutes (which can be a lifetime in the reel-in game) before we finally get a good look at Billy in all his burly splendor. Being told once he’s caught that he’s “a big one”, the fisherman give a happy ending for everyone with Billy let go to swim on and terrorize other boats and local ducks in the area, along with some celebratory splashing in the river.
