Lured by stories of catfish the size of Volkswagens, Zeb Hogan is on a mission to find out if the legendary giant catfish of the South really exist. Finding huge fish is all about taking advantage of local knowledge, so he teams up with Rusty, a lifelong catfisherman with a thick Mississippi drawl and unique southern charm. Using a massive 7-foot-tall, 40-foot-long net, they'll troll the waters for a record-breaking fish.
