Granny catches 50-pound catfish

(CBS) - A 75-year-old grandma in Croatia caught a 50-pound, nearly 5-foot-long catfish.

Jela Bezer has been fishing for decades, and this was by far her biggest catch yet. The fish was so heavy she couldn't reel it in on her own, so she called her son for help.

"I was fighting really hard and was afraid it would throw me overboard" Bezer said.

She plans to grill some of the fish, and put the rest in a rather large stew.
