A fish story from my uncle

Discussion in 'Catfish Discussion' started by spiff, Jul 13, 2004.

  1. My Uncle Carey is a retired airline pilot. He's got friends all over the country from his flying days. He knows I'm a fishin' addict and so sent me this story that a buddy of his sent him along with these pictures. Figured a few folks here would enjoy them.. I'm running down to Walmart now to see if they have any kids' basketballs in stock. What size hook do you figure I should use?... ;)

    FISH STORY FROM WICHITA EAGLE NEWSPAPER

    This was a pretty interesting story from The Sunday Wichita Eagle
    Newspaper a couple of weeks ago. Was in a housing development around
    119th st. South and Maple. Anyhow a resident in the area saw a ball
    bouncing around kind of strange like in the developments pond and when
    he went to investigate, it was a flathead catfish who had obviously
    tried to swallow a child's basketball which became stuck in its mouth.
    The fish was totally exhausted from trying to dive but unable to because
    the ball would always bring him back up to the surface.
    The resident tried numerous times to get the ball out but was
    unsuccessful.
    He finally had his wife cut the ball in order to deflate the ball and
    release the catfish.
