That's a wels. Native to some European rivers.

Great video. Yes that is a Wels catfish. Those things actually get about twice as big as the one he caught in the video. Amazing how he landed that fish. He just put his hands in its mouth and lifted it out. I would never do that with a catfish....

A wels cat looks like a cross between a flat head and bowfin.  

I am 99% sure that the reel was a Penn senator 114.  The rod "wow" i want that one for some of the bigger yellowtail out here.

What a huge catfish.  I can't believe that rod took that much punishement.  I wonder what type of lure or bait he was using?

Great video.

Most guys that target these things use live bait! Especially small carp (2-3lbs.!!!) That fish was caught on live bait.
