‘Monster Fish’ follows the search for really big creatures

Zeb Hogan is not your typical fisherman.

And, the fish he angles for are anything but normal.

Hogan is a biologist, aquatic ecologist, photographer and the star of “Monster Fish,” which appears on the National Geographic Channel. Episodes are also available on Netflix.

“Monster Fish” follows Hogan as he searches for, as the name suggests, monster fish. These range from giant catfish in the waters of America’s Deep South to a 600-pound goldfish in Thailand.

But, Hogan is not fishing for trophies to hang on his wall. Instead he seeks these monster fish to know more about them so he can work to protect them.
