Watch These Guys Catch a 45-pound Catfish in Laredo


Two Texas men reeled in not only a catch of the day, but pretty much the catch  of the week while fishing on November 22.

Danny Aguilar Jr. and Hector Hernandez, who both live in Laredo, posted a video to Facebook showing them catching the 4-foot, 45-pound catfish at Lake Casa Blanca.

You can see how big of a catch this one is, literally. Aguilar pulls the catfish out of the water around 2:40.
Even though everything is bigger in Texas, it's not every day that such a beast of a fish is caught.
