    Does look like a wells cat. LMAO, I cant see using a duck as bait :lol: That is a nice fish though, but really scaring the tourist! Thats funny.

    When I was a kid my Dad use to take us to a local lake to swim, it was nice and was deep too. Divers went down and a while later they came back up. My brother and I never paid any attention to them, they were always out there. One diver came over and was talking to my Dad, said that my Dad oughta be leary of letting us swim in the lake, said there was some HUGE catfish down there. One lady diver said she'd never go back down there again. Unfortunately, the lake now is privately owned. Was some nice fishing there too. Though never any ducks or ganders went missing. Hated those things, they always chased us.

    So much for the ones on here that believe that Wells Cats eat no meat.If they will eat a duck or dog,I see no reason to trust them with a small child.peewee-williams

    not at all discrediting your post rebelgrl but that catfish story about divers in the lake being scared of huge catfish is a story that I hear at every lake I have ever been to. Its always "big as a voltswagen" or "they tried to catch it with a two truck hook and it broke the wench" or something rediculous along those lines. best I can figure either a big cat (maybe 50 lb) looks really huge and scary when you are face to face with it in the water, or thats just a urban legend that goes around. At least in the US... (Wells and Meikong being the only exceptions, located in UK, Thailand etc.)

    Well the divers never compared the catfish to a car :roll_eyes: and neither did I. Wasnt exgerating the story either, just telling like it was. Thanks for the heads up though, I wont tell any more stories and stick to the subject from now on. :0a14:

    part of fishing is telling stories.if we didnt tell the stories about are fishing trips we would have a pretty lame website would'nt we. so dont worry about one guys comments and keep telling your stories

    Now,now Amy! You just keep on telling it like it is.I would not expect you to hear the above stories unless you hang out with the druggies and the drunks trying to impress themselves and each other.Now this is just a personal opinion of a 61 year old man who has spent a lot of his life around large lakes.The people that I notice "partake" are the ones that I noticed tell such tales.The non "partakers"seem to tell the type that you told.It is all in what you were exposed to.Now you and Irish have each been exposed to the stories of the other.peewee-williams.

    Keep on telling your stories don't let one persons remark keep you telling one. I have seen very large catfish in my time and have no shame in saying so.
