    another futile attempt to catch catfish today led to the capture of this prehistoric beast. i didnt weigh him but he was bigger than a 24lb snapper i got last year so im saying 25+. pictures do it no justice, im sure it was close to 30lb!

    My god Dink, In that 2nd photo Im not sure which is uglier???:eek:oooh:
    At least the turtle has a good tan, and yeah, your right, I wouldnt look any better so ill just shut up now.:embarassed:

    Thats a dandy beast, did you let him go? Just curious.

    Good thing you didnt try to net him, that would have been quite a mess getting him untangled

    PS at least you got a cool picture and got the skunk off your back. Rep points for that.

    I recognize that little cove in the background, I took 4 channels there that day with Mellon. Sweet little spot in that area in front of the flotsom!

    That thing's a tank! Ive seen a few garbage can lid sizeo ne's near my house... never wanted to eat em or catch em but just fun to watch and stuff. Never really wanted to take the chance of losing a body part :crazy: when i could just fish instead!
