The two pictures look like the same family of fish except maybe size. Kind of the way walleyes and saugers are here.

Good Job benbosh!

I think you might be right. They look like what you found on the net and by the way the guys were reacting when the fish got out of the holes. They would be a bit wary of those stickers on them fins...

Phew, now I can spend more time on FM today instead of searching the web...

Thanks!

Since the comments following the vids are in Potugese, my guess is they are fishing some Amazon backwater.

Yeap looks to be a Tiger Shovelnose Catfish. Mexico to South America, usually very good & tasty dinner fare as they say. They are also popular aquarium pets for large fish tank owners.

Looks like they were fishing on some sort of a "Chinampas" or floating islands or gardens that were developed by the Aztec or Mayas usually used for growing crops on top of water.
