East Alton teenager catches 80 pound catfish

KMOV - An East Alton teenager has quite a story to tell after fishing.

19-year-old Dustin Mcewen was fishing in the Mississippi near his home, when he hooked a massive catfish.

The fish weighed in at 80 pound, and Mcewen says it took 45 minutes to reel it in.

Mcewen decided to release the gargantuan back into the river, but not before calling his wife and telling her to bring their 2-year-old daughter down for a look.
