    "Bet it wasn't on a Zebco 33"

    Lol, I can just see the story now... "I was out crappie fishing when I hooked into something big........ 300 hours later and he still didn't even realize he was hooked. Luckily it quit swimming around, so we grabbed this big landing net, and....."

    What you don't know is that Gary caught that fish, he just changed his profile picture so you won't see it! Gary put that one back up!

    That Mekong Cat was caught with a large net, Saw the particulars on a National Geographic show last week. Not really fair in my eye but one magnificent looking fish.

    I saw a show (got it TVO'd) "Monster Fish". They showed a bunch of notable species. What the guys did for the Cat they showed was to have a net with holes so big that nything in the river other than a tree or one of these Cats can swim right through. It's like hitting the lottery in that neck of the woods. I thing a large fish netted the fisherman $2K-3K.
