    Checking stomach contents of your catch can tgell you alot about the food of the species you are seeking. I personally have found some weird things in a catfishes stomach when cleaning them. I just read a post about someone finding yellow wasps...what are some weird things you guys have found in the stomach of catfish you were cleaning.

    Welder, how big of a beer can was it, an 8 oz. pony can, 12 oz regular can, a 16 oz can, or one of the big 24 oz cans? I left a 12 oz beer can with about an inch left inside on my deck one night about two weeks ago. The next day I found it in the yard some 20 yards away with all kinds of teeth marks on the rim. Evidently, it was a possum. I don't know if the possum needed the vitamins or minerals in the can or the alcohol.

    I read once in a Field and Stream about some fisherman finding a wrist watch inside a catfish stomach. Reckon they're craving some type of vitamin or mineral?
