    Did they do the thing where they caught it bare-handed?

    That dwarfs the one I caught yesterday. Mine was like 6 lbs, and that's pretty big. He was this cool looking slate gray/blue. Of course I let him go, though. I don't catch to eat, don't like fish that much anyways.

    For a joke, I bought a Monster Catfish wall calendar for the office at work. Most of the fish in that calendar are that size.

    When the Ross Barnet Reservior was drained (for some reason that escapes me presently) they found catfish the size of small cars. Supposedly. :D

    Well, that's certainly easier than sitting there for hours with rod, reel, and hook! Though probably not as fun. And now that I think about it, draining a resevoir probably isn't like draining the sink. That would probably take a month, wouldn't it? Okay, that settles it...back to fishing.

    Depends how big your drain is I suppose. They had a system in place to alter the water level and it broke. To fix it they had to lower the water level anyhow, and since the current bass population had never fully recovered from an ammonia poisoning, they decided to drain it completely, kill off all the fish, re-shape the bottom, refill and re-stock it to grow trophy sized bass.

    Any bass being posisoned, whether fish or instrument, saddens me... :(

    Trophy sized, huh? Better be those person-height ones I always see at those Karate or Cheerleading competitions (both of which I have never attended). Aren't those pointless btw? Like, isn't it the symbolism of a trophy the real point of it anyway? I guess anything to make the next place below you feel worse, huh? haha...

    Boy, I sure know how to get off topic. Hijacking your own threads is fun!

    "You know when they have a fishing show on TV? They catch the fish and then let it go. They don't want to eat the fish, but they do want to make it late for something. "Where were you?" "I got caught!" "I don't believe you, let me see the inside of your lip." - Mitch
