Last week, Welsh angler Dr. Martin David Kent (better known as Dai by his friends) was officially named the all-tackle record holder for Mekong giant catfish, the largest freshwater fish species in the world. At the scale, the fish weighed 260 pounds and stretched the tape to 7 feet.
Kent landed the monster after a grueling hour-long battle that pushed him and his gear to the limit. Here's the story of his epic fight.
