An Italian fisherman may set a world record for the biggest fish caught with a rod and reel after he recently hauled in a 280-pound wels catfish.

Dino Ferrari hooked the humongous fish, which measured 8.7 feet in length, in Italy’s Po Delta.

The world record weight for a wels catfish is over 300 pounds, however Ferrari’s fish may could be the heaviest caught with a rod and reel, according to the Daily Mirror.
