Incredible And Amazing | World Most Giant Catfish Ever, Caught by Blind Fisherwoman

Whopper: This 192lb albino catfish that Sheila caught was comfortably the largest one ever hooked - and her second world record

A fisherman who introduced his blind wife to fishing has been upstaged twice - as he watched her break two world records for catching giant catfish.

Retired gardener Alan Penfold, 63, decided to start bringing wife Sheila along on his fishing trips four years ago but wouldn't have expected to be upstaged by his partially-sighted partner.

She has broken the record for the biggest catfish ever caught by a woman and then hooked the largest albino catfish ever caught in two fishing holidays.
