    Yesterday while fishing for Catfish in the Red River (Fargo North Dakota) my fishing partner sheila hooked and eventually reeled in a very large freshwater clam or mussel.

    It weighed at least 5lb's, and the inside shell was a brillant purple. And we caught 2 cats using the meat for bait. :)

    Species caught so far this year fishing for cats.
    Northern Pike (aprox 4 lb) Walleye, Goldeye, Drum or sheepshead, Redhorse sucker, Carp (lots of them 5lb and up)

    We don't have shad up here, I suspect the really big cats eat Goldeyes. They probably average 3/4 to 1.5 lbs, long flat, and deep but fairly thin. Kind of like a crappie stretched out long. Pieces of cut goldeye will almost always catch cats if they are around and biting at all.

    I caught a coffee cup on a pier in the Pacific once, heck of fight with the tide going out. Thought about having it mounted but never did.

    When I was 13, I was sent to stay with my older brother who was stationed at Minot A.F.B.. My brother and I were out fishing one day and I too caught a mussel. Must be a North Dakota thing.
    Once when I was fishing for bluegill I caught a goldfish.

    Me in a buddy of mine were fishing a 3 biggest fish tournament and had 2 decent blues in the boat but they just wernt biting at all and we needed 1 more fish for our limit. We set up in the next to last hole with only 1 hour left in tment my rod loaded up big time and I picked it up and the fight was on. I told him it was a good fish and he was ready to boat it for me. When it finnally made its way beside the boat it was someones work boot. I could have swore that thing was fighting back.:smile2: I told him we ought to bring it to the weigh-in to see if they would way it. He still gives me a hard time about it.:big_smile:

    Once, while we were fishing together, my cousin caught a small pig skeleton. I was 6. It freaked me out at first, then I just about died laughing.

    I was fishing the Ohio River once and wanted to freshen up my bait. When I started to reel in I knew I had something but it was not fighting much. First blond wig I ever caught...thank the Lord the owner wasn't attached!!

    One of the guys I use to work with was fishing around Houston in the ocean, and caught a dead woman. He gave me a bit of advice, if you ever hook a dead body, CPR it, and let someone else catch it, he said it wasnt worth the trouble and time to report it........lol
