DOMASA, Slovakia (CBS) -- A monster catfish was caught in the European republic of Slovakia. Experts estimate the catfish had been hiding underwater for around 40 years. The two fishermen spent close to an hour fighting to pull the huge fish to shore. Once there, they were amazed to see the 8 foot 5 inch, 220 pound monster.
The two lucky men specialize in catfish fishing and use a special handmade rod to attract the fish.
The majority of the time their catches end up on the dinner table. This time the fish was released back to water.
