Man-Sized Goonch CatFish – River Monsters


I’ve just hooked a massive fish. Is this the one I’m after? I’m gonna have to go for a swim. I don’t know what I’m thinking apart from being desperate, not to lose this fish… Regardless of my own safety. Wait ’till he comes up. Now! Now! Now! That is a serious size Goonch, that is a man sized animal, that is as big as a person. It is bigger than a lot of people around here. That is a big fish! They do exist, the Goonch do exist! Six foot of muscle behind that mouth, and those teeth are just like shark teeth, pointing back. If that got a hold of you, there’ll be no getting away. When I was diving with Rick, and we were seeing these beasts under the water, and they just look so otherworldly. Is it a hallucination, do these things really exist?! And yes the Goonch does exist. Just the absolute perfect predator, huge mouth on there, huge huge huge mouth. And if anything just comes down within range of that mouth, it’s too late. And big as this fish is… the fish that is taking people would be bigger than this. I mean it wouldn’t actually need to be more than a couple of feet longer, but that would really give it a bit more weight. I mean it would probably weigh twice as much as this. And you know, just the thought of that is quite terrifying. Okay at… Is it off the ground? Now yes. Okay One six six One hundred and sixty one pounds. I keep expecting a monster to lure out of the murk, and then one does.

  22. I know a lot of you wont think I'm not telling the truth but I had a 16,000+ gallon fish tank growing up. I'm super lucky to have a family that could afford me such a luxury but I did end up being that lucky. This was a fish I would never want to keep as i had to go into a tank the size of a small Manhattan apartment to take care of it. Not a pet!
