So I have a nice size pond that over the years I have put catfish in. Its really cool cause they come up and eat fish food and what not. Well awile back I noticed the biggest one, who I call Apollo, was starting to get a growth on his bottom jaw. But it wasn't affecting his eating at all. I figured maybe one of the grand kids had broke a line on him and his jaw was just swelling up. But today I seen him come up and eat and the growth appeared to be about the size of a golf ball and was stopping him from closing his mouth. So I decided to hook him and see what it was. When I got him into shore it turned out to be a tumor sort of thing. It was rock hard and just connected to his bottom jaw. After a lot of debating I decided to try and cut it off. I figured he was gonna die sooner or later if I didn't so I went for it. It seemed to go pretty well. It was almost like the growth was just stuck there. He wasn't bleeding much so I think he's gonna be ok. Anyway I put a picture of him on, he's 33 inches, Im not sure the weight, didn't have a scale.:confused2:. Any guesses on how much he might weigh?
