    They gotta get big somehow... maybe he was gonna bring it to his 90lb buddy... kinda like that old cartoon with the bulldog and the little rat dog!

    It's amazing what a catfish will tackle! As long at it'll fit in their mouth head first they don't seem to care how long it is! It's something else to see a little channel cat in an aquarium with a fish almost as long as he is sticking out of his mouth! Sure goes to show you what size bait you can get away with, huh?! LOL!

    I saw a pic a year or so ago of a large (45 lb I think) flathead trying to eat a 15 lb blue cat. Anyone else see that? If so, and you have that pic please repost it. It was too cool!

    I heard just as a rule of thumb that a flaty can take a bait up to 1/3 of is own body weight. Just think of some of the fish that a 90 pounder could eat. Might be a good remedy for the big head carp.
