The Mother of all Lunkers?

I saw it in the Post, but this thing is definitely making the rounds: a 646 pound catfish, representing perhaps the largest freshwater fish ever found alive, was caught in the Mekong river in a remote area of Thailand. While efforts were made to try and save it, the big male died anyway. The villagers didn't let it go to waste though... they apparently had a gargantuan catfish fry with this fish as the guest of honor.

Includes picture!
