Zeb Hogan's Monster Fish

Fishermen tell tall tales all the time.  But when Zeb Hogan says he's caught an 8-foot long fish that takes 5 men to lift, he isn't lying. Actually, that is Zeb's job: tracking down the world's biggest endangered monsters from the farthest corners of the earth. National Geographic just named him one of its 15 fellows worldwide. The Reno professor and star of TV's "Monster Fish" shares his stories of catching freshwater giants, and what it takes to keep these "monsters" from going extinct.
