    one of the reasons they are so hard to catch is you have to wait till one breaks somone's line, then snag the line. it's a true test of fishing prowess!

    We have them here in Illinois. I have caught a few of them using night crawlers at the creek I grew up by. I lived not far from where the creek feeds into the Wabash river and I have caught many different types of fish there.
