    I thought this was absolutely amazing, I won't tell you what it is, but it's not a catfish. Hope you enjoy the read and the pics.

    That would be something else to catch something like that. Very interesting post.

    Pretty crazy when they estimated that it was approx. 130 years old! Could you imagine catching something that was swimming before your state joined the union?

    Wow been a long time sence I seen something like that.When I was little me and a buddy found one in the creek near my grandpa's house.Was not as big as that one but I bet he would give him a good run for the money.I realy had no idea they lived that long though.
