Catfish

My buddy recently landed this one.  I'm jealous.

They are the most god awful loking fish ever.....I really hope they taste better than they look.

When I was in the southern USA I just could not bring myself to try it, and I will eat most things...

They are really good eating especially the flatheads.  Flatheads aren't scavengers and only eat live fish.  No matter how large they get they still taste good.  The scavengers get a bit muddy tasting if they get large.

Belting fish! Put me on the jealous list as well.

I've never had the chance to try them, but I've often heard they're really good.

Flatiron catches a few catfish BB but the real monsters are on mainland Europe in places like Spain. They grow to several hundred pounds in weight.

I have a mate who travels to spain regularly for the catfish fishing.  The baits are so large that they are literally rowed out rather than cast.

bdooly nice fish by the way BB

That's how I used to fish for sharks in my little boat.  I hooked a few but never landed any but I did enjoy getting pulled around for several hours.
