Where are they going to find that many chips?

7ft fish

Big 'un

An Austrian schoolboy landed a seven foot fish on his first ever fishing trip. Holger Vukovich, 14, had to use a winch to haul the animal out of the water because it was so heavy.

He caught the eight stone [about 112 pounds] cat fish when his grandad took him and a school friend out on his first fishing trip to a pond in his home town of Baumgarten.

He said: “We actually wanted to fish for carp, but almost straight away I hooked a fish. At first I was a bit scared because the fish pulled so hard I almost ended up in the water. But then I managed to start reeling it in. The problem was it was so heavy that we needed to use a winch to drag it out. It took us about half an hour.”
