The reel Beast from the East...<br />
<br />
This is the moment a lucky angler landed the catch-of-a-lifetime in the form of a record-breaking catfish.<br />
<br />
Benjamin Gründer thought his hook had snagged a submerged tree when the monster fish went for his bait, such was the colossal weight of it.<br />
<br />
He quickly realised it was a big fish and spent a gruelling 45 minutes reeling it towards the banks of the River Po in Italy.<br />
<br />
Benjamin, 37, weighed the wels catfish at a whopping 286lbs or 20st.
