We all have a "the one that got away" story, but this one's a bit different.
The fisherman says he and a buddy were fishing early Tuesday morning when he claims that a 125-pound catfish pulled on his line so hard that it caused him to lose his footing, and he fell into the swift current of the aqueduct.
