A huge 3.9-feet catfish has been caught in Gyeonggi-do, Korea. The fisherman, 59-year-old Soon-sik Park, caught it with a net he has set up in Imjin river. The catfish was the largest ever caught in that river.

Park said the fish moved fiercely to escape the net and he barely managed to capture it. After some deliberation, he said he gave the fish to a senior citizen living nearby for her to eat it as medicine.

The weight of the catfish was 50 pounds.  It was female and had eggs in its abdomen.  Its age was estimated to be 25 years old.
