    Was fooling around online and found this article in Snopes about the ol' "catfish that scared the diver by the dam" myth that's around. Link in the bottom of the article is to the 1914 pic that was (allegedly) of a giant flathead filling an entire horse-drawn wagon. Pretty funny. No photoshop in those days, but the theory on how they "faked" the picture is pretty cool.

    Pretty interesting article. Here's my favorite line from it.

    There is the rub. To call a fisherman a liar is one thing. But to say so about his mother is enough to get filleted, and fast.
