Angling Times (UK) - - 50 GREATEST CATCHES -

46

A SIN­GLE grain of corn is not the hook­bait you’d nor­mally as­so­ciate with big catfish, but that’s what Paul Hiller used to land a 46lb 8oz mog­gie dur­ing a 1997 match.

He was fish­ing the NFA Team Chal­lenge on Spain’s Rioja-roba reser­voir when he hooked the cat, which took 90 min­utes to land – the big­gest fish ever in a fresh­wa­ter fish­ing match.
