    I read somewhere about a series of fishing shows that are supposed to be starting today with one about catfishing.

    Does anyone know the channel and time? I can't find it anywhere...W

    So did anybody catch the show? I saw it last night, and the guy was after the supposed "man-eating" catfish in India, the species name escapes me at the moment.

    The show was way over-dramatized, and he was acting like he was swimming with Jaws or something. It's simply a catfish with sharp teeth.

    Anyway, what saved the show for me - SPOILER ALERT -
    he was fishing for like a week straight for a big catfish and just before the floods came, he hooked a monster. The river was raging at this point. He said as he was fighting the fish, if the fish makes a run out of the area it's in, he might lose the fish. What does the fish do, it makes a run! So the guy does probably the most HARDCORE fishing thing I've ever seen, he jumps in the river pole in hand and let the current sweep him toward the fish! I just loved seeing that.:tounge_out: He ended up catching it. It went 160ish.

    I think they called that cat a "gouch"
    reportedly the monster fish had grown big
    by feeding on the partially burnt human remains
    that result from people there
    burning their dead in a river bank fire and then pushing
    it all in the river. ( Hindu culture I think )

    We could start by rounding up all the lowlifes, drug dealers, pedaphiles, rapist etc., light up a big chum barbeque and bulldoze it into the river. Clean the country up and grow some big fish.
    Seems like a good plan to me...W
