I second the river monsters suggestion. I have heard the same story about the vw fish in Tenn lakes as well.
I wouldn't use a warn winch. I'd get a new one!! Muahahahahaha! :wink:i say get a 1ton, drop a line from a warn winch in, hook up a pig on it, let it out there and see what ya come up with. use a bouy as a bobber.
Ive heard that there is a catfish below Kentucky Lake dam that eats VW beetles. :wink:Ten years ago, I worked for the Iowa DNR. An engineer told me that his buddy was a diver for the Corps of Engineers and that he had seen "catfish as big as VW Beetles" around the footings of the locks.
Five or six years ago, a construction coworker of mine told me that a local private gravel pit had "catfish as big as VW Beetles". His buddies evidently did some skin diving in there.
Ten minutes ago, I read a post on the Ohio forum about divers finding "catfish as big as VW Beetles" in Ohio.
All right, whats going on here...who else has heard stories of "catfish as big as VW Beetles" ?!? Anyone seen one? :wink:
THATS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS ABOUT TO POST PATCAT50. Everybody I know is related to somebody or somebodys friend is a diver it's all b/s in my opinion.If I had a buck for every time I heard the old diver story,I,d be fishing out of a new boat next year.As many times as I.ve heard it ,there,d have to be like a quarter of the U.S population employed as divers for the corps!:roll_eyes::tounge_out::smile2:.
