    These pictures where taken at the pond behind someone's house.
    Their neighbor saw a ball bouncing around kind of strange like and when
    he went to investigate, it was a flathead catfish with a child's
    basketball stuck in its mouth and the pictures tell the rest of the
    story. His wife did have to cut the ball in order to deflate the ball
    and release the catfish.

    Moral of story: Do not be a ball hog. :eek

    Ok guys maybe I am just a little to skeptical but I have a hard time believing that fish got that ball stuck in his mouth? I am glad that the fella saved the fish but I am thinking the catfish had help getting that ball stuck in his mouth! Maybe someone caught it and then crammed the ball in there?
    Thanks for posting the pictures, I agree that is something you do not see evryday!

    I don't have a hard time believing it at all. In fact I am going to have to start using bigger baits.
