Ah, photography and perspective, a wonderful way to deceive the public. A nice record though.

looks very photoshopped to me. The shadow sizing is mismatched.

Not at all, that's the way the camera sees it. Here's another shot. That catfish is 8.8 feet long4142

Saw the VIDEO on this a few days ago and these catfish reportedly get to 13 feet long. How do you photoshop a video?

Seems like an 8' 9" fish that's that fat would weigh a lot more than 280 pounds. Hell, the guy is probably around 200 pounds. I don't know if it's just the wide-angle lens or what, but I've seen deer and elk pics that make the animal look a lot bigger than it really is an they're not photoshopped.

A 9-foot Great White weighs around 550 pounds and this catfish is fatter. Take a look at this catfish at 646 pounds (almost 9 feet):
