    What oddities have you found in catfish stomachs?

    -rubber worm, chewing gum, cigarette butt, stones.

    Oh man, I have been thinking about starting a thread about this for a couple weeks now but you beat me to it.

    I always have to open the stomach and check it out, guess I'm just a curious person.

    I've found plenty of fish bones and crawdad parts in flatties and channels. In one channel it looked like he had been eating a pound of mushy moss.

    The best one was in a big channel. I cut it open and saw dark fur, then out popped an ENTIRE mouse. It's tail was beginning to digest and was showing vertebra but other than that it was a whole mouse. Haha.

    Chewing gum and cigarette butts? Lol.
