The Wells Catfish is found in Europe.  It is much larger than the catfish found in the Americas. The Wells Catfish can reach lengths of 12-13 feet.  It mainly feeds on insects, small fish, and arthropods while it is small and will eat large fish, mice, and even waterfowl.  Most Wells Catfish are found in deep rivers and lakes.  They like warm water.  Taking a Wells Catfish requires strong tackle.  Usually a boat rod is used.  Live bait works best at night or twilight periods as this is when it feeds.
