SINGAPORE - A Singapore angler caught a large catfish in the Rochor Canal which weighed 8kg.
Mr Rosman Mohd, 45, said he struggled with the fish for 30 minutes on Saturday before hooking it.
He told The Straits Times it was the biggest fish he has ever caught in Singapore. He said that catfish in the canal are normally just around 3 to 4kg.
They used a fish net to scoop the fish, which measured at least 50cm, he told Shin Min Daily News.
