S'pore angler catches 'monster' 8kg catfish in Rochor Canal

A 45-year-old Singaporean angler made the biggest catch of his life last Saturday (May 20) after he caught a catfish weighing 8kg in the Rochor Canal.

In a video posted on the SBS - Sure Boh Singapore Facebook page, two men can be seen using a net to scoop the catfish from the canal. 

Mr Rosman Mohd said he struggled with the fish for 30 minutes before he was finally able to hook it, according to the video description.

After he caught the fish, a foreign worker asked to buy it from him. Mr Rosman gave the fish to him for free.
