Ben Tomkunas, 25, of Coventry, who caught the 21.3-pound (9.66-kilogram) fish, said he gave it to his grandfather the morning after he caught it and it was eaten.

"I can't believe that they think it's OK to do this to someone," Tomkunas told the Journal Inquirer. "It's such an embarrassment."

basscomm: comrade: I thought that they were taking about an actual large catfish which are inedible above a certain size.  Instead it's only 19lbs.

Here's a large and inedible catfish. I eat these a couple of times when our local fisherman sells them and they're pretty good.

It was a 20+ pound fish. Weren't there any leftovers to use for DNA testing?
