    It was called "The Big Thrill" and it was all about catching huge fish! They showed deep sea fishing Blue Cat Fishing and the Mekong Catfish. They also showed people who go into the water hand fishing for flatheads.The 124 pound cat that was caught on the Mississippi River that weighed 124 pounds they said it's circumference was 5 feet.I thought it was a very interesting show and just wondered if ya all had been able to watch it.:big_smile:

    MRR yes it was the same 124 pound catfish from Alton.Someone videotaped them as they were trying to pick it up and it took 3 good sized men standing sise by side to hold it.If memory serves me correctly they said he was 5 0r 6 feet long! The Mekong was caught by using a huge net that is strung from one side of the bank to the other.I guess it went all the way to the bottom,anyway they would occupy themselves doing other things on the bank and if the water started splashin alot that ment they had to start pulling in the net.Interesting way to catch fish I spose.I don't think they'd allow that in the United Stated!:big_smile:
