    I think they live in Northern India. What I've heard is that for thousands of
    years these catfish have been eating leftover human parts from the Hindus
    cremating their dead and dumping the ashes from the funeral pyres into the
    river. They lost a couple of teenage boys swimming in the river last year.
    I think it just edited the population towards more reflective humans. Would
    you swim in what is called The River of Death by the locals?

    I spent a few days following the Kali Gandaki River in Nepal back in 1999. Nobody told me about the giant carnivorous catfish or I might have thrown out a pole. And waded a little faster :crazy:

    I was suprised to see his pole hold up, especially in the current. Have you ever seen those guys who hold the giant sturgeons by the tail and swim under water with them when they release them? That is pretty cool.

    as mean, nasty, and ugly as those goonch are,, id still rather go handfishing for them than deal with a candiru catfish from the amazon.

    I've watched both shows too, they are kinda slow at first, but the producers have to build the tension up for the climax:eek:oooh::wink::roll_eyes::smile2:

    I got to watch the last 20 minutes of the show last night. I was wishing that I scanned the channels a bit earlier, but it sounds like I didn't miss much with the other 40 minutes. Pretty bold move to jump in like that, but I was happy to see him land that monster!

    And hear the silence on the candiru fish? That's not the big red catfish.
    It's the little one that's more scary than a piranah to those who swim
    in the Amazon basin. Shows up where the sun don't shine to give a clue.

    I love watching In-Fisherman when Mr. Stange is going for those gar. Its insane how long they let them run with the bait before setting the hook. I honestly dont know if I could wait that long to set the hook :smile2:

    They had another good segment on today, mostly about the Wels Catfish in Europe. I think there's another one scheduled for next Sunday too.
