An Oklahoma man has quite the fish tale for his grandchildren.Ed Coleman says he's caught thousands of fish in his 50 years. But the 65 pound catfish was a whopper.

The flathead catfish is about 4 feet long -- much bigger than the catfish Coleman usually reels in.

But the retiree isn't keeping his trophy. He said he would release it back into the Arkansas River, and try tracking it down again after the fish has put on some more weight.
