like fishing?

check this out

This is a picture of catfish a guy recently caught at Lake Texoma in Texas. According to the news, he was fishing from the shore with a 20 pound test line. When he realized what a huge fish he had caught, he stayed in the water with it and kept it close to shore with his hands.

He used his cell phone to call a friend and tell him to bring a scale. The friend got there and the scale topped out at 100 pounds. They took it to the nearby Bait shop and weighed it there. It weighed 121 pounds!

Luckily a game warden was there and called the Athens Freshwater Fisheries Center and asked them if they wanted the fish. They sent a 'live truck' to the sight and brought the fish safely to Athens. They are getting it ready for the public to view. The paper said it would be two or three weeks before they'd release it into the public tank. They estimated the 121 pound catfish was about 27 years old!

haha, im not much of a fisher, but that is a huge fish! Sorry Corey, generally the bigger the fish (after a certain point), the worse it tastes cooked.

There are stories of catfish that big in the TN River, i remember people talking about when they built several of the dams on that river that some of the divers went down once and refused to go again because the catfish were bigger than they were.

Actually that is not exactly true Tuna get to be over 1500 lbs and they taste good?? Actually that catfish would be great cut into nuggets and deep fried. I like catfish nuggets!!!

The fact is fish like Salmon and a few others tend to get oily when they get huge and are unedible!
