November 25, 2006: Big-ass catfish



The Daily Mail has the story of this new European record catfish haul.

Quote:
A British angler has landed a European record on his first catfishing expedition. Carl Smith, pictured right with friend Dave Jones, caught the 226lb wels catfish on holiday in Spain.

The men struggled with the 8ft monster for more than 90 minutes and have named it Jaws.
You want to talk about eating IotD animals? OK then.

holyfuckingshit



Karenv  Saturday Nov 25 01:03 PM

And I thought the one foot catfish I caught as a kid were long. :-(



CaliforniaMama  Saturday Nov 25 01:17 PM

Throw that puppy on the grill!!!



jinx  Saturday Nov 25 01:36 PM

Actually, puppies are better roasted...

Several grills.

So, what are the folks up at Loch Ness going to do for tourists now that these guys caught Nessie?


milkfish  Saturday Nov 25 03:05 PM

It's obviously faked - the fish is normal-sized and those guys are only four inches tall.

Catfish steaks for EVERYBODY !!!

Actually, I was just wondering if everyone else felt like having sex with that catfish or if it was just me?

No playing with your food Young MAN !!!!!



Sheldonrs  Saturday Nov 25 06:38 PM

Size does matter.



Gleep  Saturday Nov 25 10:49 PM

Fish smell bad in general--I'd hate to think what a fish that big smells like. I don't think I'd be willing to put a huge dead fish on my lap, no matter how much I wanted a picture.



Ibby  Saturday Nov 25 11:15 PM

My only question...

did they go noodling for it?



zippyt  Saturday Nov 25 11:35 PM

That would have been a site !!!



footfootfoot  Saturday Nov 25 11:55 PM

DucksNuts  Sunday Nov 26 01:03 AM

Whats noodling?



zippyt  Sunday Nov 26 01:13 AM

Walking along in a swamp sticking your hand in holes under the water , feeling about , if you feel a cat fishes gills ( they tend to sit around on the bottom and in holes waiting for sometasty to swim into their mouths ) grab a hold and wrestle the fish to the surface , I have NEVER and will NEVER do it because
1) alagater snapping turtles tend to do the same thing ,
2) snakes hang out there as well ( snakes don't bother me so much when you know they are there , its when they supprise you that you tend to find trees with your face )



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Nov 26 01:47 AM

In that case, I'd rather be the eater than the catcher.



Sundae  Sunday Nov 26 08:41 AM

For some reason the term noodling brought a very different idea to mind... I can't see any man risking that just for a fish though.



Aliantha  Sunday Nov 26 08:33 PM

Fish don't smell bad when you first catch them. It's only after a few days in the fridge (moreso out of it) that they smell bad.

What I'd hate about having a catfish on my lap, even a small one, is the slime they have all over them.



Aliantha  Sunday Nov 26 08:34 PM

btw..that's one fucking huge catfish.



footfootfoot  Sunday Nov 26 09:44 PM

Didn't Australia grace us with "love serenade"?

"Breathe Vicki Ann, breathe!"



Aliantha  Sunday Nov 26 10:24 PM

I've no idea what you're talking about.



Oafed  Sunday Nov 26 11:08 PM

Nothing special here folks... Move along...






Aliantha  Sunday Nov 26 11:09 PM

Where in the hell do people find these fucking huge fish?



milkfish  Monday Nov 27 07:31 AM

Wastewater streams near nuclear power plants.

I want to know whether "canoodling" means noodling from a canoe.



Shawnee123  Monday Nov 27 11:38 AM

I'm more concerned with how they catch those giant things more than where do they find them.

And, do they catch and release? (I hope)

I remember it being quite funny, but then I was a bit of a bake artist back in the day.

So it's not just me! And you thought IOTD animals were just for eating...

Yeah, right. Dinner, a movie, and who knows?

Yeah, what were these guys fishing with, steel cables? More than likely they were just out to catch your basic largemouth or crappie, but what happens when you've got a 220-pound catfish hooked onto your 6-pound line?

I'd bet they are related somehow - think - they are both sticking your fingers into damp fishy smelling places to see what you come up with......


rkzenrage  Wednesday Nov 29 01:37 AM

I doubt they noodled that one... I'd like to see that struggle.



mitheral  Thursday Dec 7 02:38 AM

Man I'd never go back in the water if I caught one of those mamoths.
