I once caught a whale with a cane pole and a bobber off of the Proctorville Bridge. Then I realized it was just some fat chick on a tube. Does that count?

Most of the time you don't need to cast super far to pull in a pretty big fish, most catfish or surf rods from about 7-ish to 10-ish feet will cast more than far enough. If you want to cast further, get a boat.

Some of you all are telling tall tales.

I was talking about these boys in WV saying they seen catfish as big as VW Beetles.

As far as I can tell, going by state fishing record books the biggest fish caught in the OHIO river is this one.
William Chumbler of Calvert City, Kentucky
cast a spinnerbait into the Ohio River on March 23 expecting a bass to hit.
Instead of a bass, Chumbler hooked into a 106-pound paddlefish over five
feet long and more than three feet around. It is now the new state record
for the species.

Now if someone says they caught a bigger one, they are either lying or dumb not to get their name put in the record book.

what has been the biggest fish caught in the ohio river?
I did somme research and found that the biggest Catfish was caught in the Ohio River, and weighed in at 104 Lbs, was caught in Ky. Near the WV line. Sure thought there would have been larger cats pulled out of the Ohio

I'm 84 years old now and have lived and worked by the river my whole life. I've seen catfish in the 50-60 lb. range in my time but if there was a fish as big as a small car I believe I would have at least seen a dead one wash up on the bank once in a while.

I live in aliquippa just a few miles downriver from Pittsburgh on the Ohio and people pull 150#+ catfish every summer. I remeber seeing newspaper pics of ones underwater that looked to be big enough to swallow a couple of full grown men no problem.

The same stories are said about every river or big impoundment. There are not fish big as volkswagons or even close. The biggest catfish was a 104# blue. The visibility in the river is so poor divers have about a 3ft range of vision in the clearest times of the river.
