Last Memorial Day I spent a few days at Lake Marion and was cruising around in my boat one day and saw what I thought were two catfish lip locked rolling around on the surface. I turned the boat around and by the time I got to them they were gone. About two weeks later I was back at the lake drift fishing when again I saw two fish lip locked on the surface. I was in a pontoon boat so we decided to sneak up on the fish and scoop them. My son moved to the front of the boat with the net as I eased over to them as carefully & slowly as I could. As we got closer it was clear these were two nice cats in the high teens. As i centered the fish with the boat my son put the net in water and in the fish went. As soon as they felt the net they went crazy thrashing and spalshing. The biggest jumped but we landed the other(about 15lbs). It had the others mouth inprint on its nose. That was a lot fun. I asked around and no one I asked had seen this but did hear of it before. Does anyone know if this is part of the spawn/mating process or what. Really cool to this.
