Fishing brothers outdo each other with giant catfish catches

Catfishpm3Young brothers Ben and Jack Scott were reeling with sibling rivalry after catching two whopping catfish - weighing 355lbs between them - within a day of each other.

Jack, 15, was first to net a huge fish when he snared a 168lb (12st) catfish - almost twice his own body weight.

But not to be outdone his little brother Ben, 12, caught a catfish weighing 187lbs (13st) - a Spanish record - in exactly the same spot the next day.

Both fish were twice as long as the junior anglers - and were caught during a family holiday in Mequinenza, Spain.
