Fish take over mall

July 3rd 2014 00:49
No doubt you know someone who has a koi pond. And who among us has walked along the waterfront and spied a school of catfish so large the fish are practically rubbing fins? And who hasn't been to the mall in the past few weeks? Now, imagine all three of those scenarios combined and you get an idea of what happened at an abandoned mall in Bangkok, Thailand.

In an apocalyptic scene, fish were found living in a deserted mall in Bangkok, Thailand after it caught fire in 1999. That's right--1999. Evidently, the mall wasn't in a prime real estate area!





Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!

electric catfish
Summer weather here in the U.S. means it's time for cat fishing! While anglers are doing their best to land a giant blue or channel cat, over in tropical Africa and along the Nile River, they're a little more careful about handling decent size cats because they may be landing and Electric Catfish.

This picture has been around. I thought it was a joke the first time I saw it since they were focusing on the lips!
Believe it or not, species of this family have the ability to produce an electric shock of up to 350 volts.

The craze of nooding continues!

July 24th 2013 01:14
I've said it before and I'll say it again, noodling is not my cup of tea.

Call it "hand fishing" if you want to but, poking my fingers into an underwater crevice just strikes me as as invitation to disaster!

Cool cats

December 28th 2011 01:54
It may not be very cold where you are but, December means cold weather around here and for many people that means an end to their catfish adventures until summer. As with too many things in fishing, the afsence of winter catfish depends.

Landing catfish in the winter is going to depend chiefly on they type of catfish you're after. Blue catfish, are quite active and can be found in water which will be shunned by most other fish. AND, unbelieveably enough, you may find them in shallow water! This goes against convention thinking which says deep water is the haunt of catfish. Remember, this is a MAY but if the baitfish go shallow the blues often follow.

The electric catfish

January 25th 2011 02:31
electric catfish
There may be over 2000 varieties of catfish in the world, but a lot of people have never heard of the electric catfish.

Although this may sound like joke, the electric catfish actually does exist and can be found in slower-moving portions of the Nile and other river systems in Central and West Africa.

Another good site

January 16th 2011 04:23
Here's a good site I've been checking out the last few days.

Turns out this is actually a site for a fishing lake in France. Although I usually don't get into this type of web page, there are plenty of videos where you may learn something aside from a gallery of photos showing what you can pull out of the Lake.

When is a fish a fish?

February 28th 2010 01:37
It's going to take the U.S. Government to determine if certain fish from Vietnam are actually catfish because the imports are hurting domestic business.

In order to begin their campaign, U.S. catfish producers must get the Department of Agriculture to say the fish from Vietnam is truly a catfish. Sounds simple, right? There may be trouble because only seven years ago catfish farmers successfully lobbied to have the Vietnamese fish designated as something other than a catfish.

Big cats in the water

October 29th 2009 01:15
Tales of giant catfish both fascinate and appall. These behemoths unite us is a fear of the murky depths although we may live hundreds if not thousands of miles from the nearest shark--what we usually think of at the mention of "monsters of the deep."

Some catfish actually do grow to tremendous sizes. Weights of over 600 pounds or over 270 kilograms and 10 feet or three meters are documented so photographs of anglers displaying fantastic catches are not uncommon. However, it's when these photographs are coupled with bogus reports that trouble or even urban legends begin.

Man eater?

October 28th 2009 01:01
Giant catfish
Stories about man-eating catfish spring up all the time from areas in Asia or South America.

Usually, the term is used to identify a giant fish having the capacity to devour a human rather than the fact that it has actually consumed human flesh.

What's that fish called?

October 19th 2009 01:53
The last time I was home to see my dad he said, "You have fish on the brain."

I just nodded and smiled because that's a lot better than having one up your penis.

Invasive catfish

July 26th 2009 00:49
Hooking a catfish can be one of the best freshwater experiences you'll ever have so, when I saw this story about putting catfish on par with sharks I was intrigued.

I was taken in because catfish can be pretty mean and can grow to unbelievable sizes.

Another big catch with a Barbie rod!

April 12th 2009 05:13
There must be something about those Barbie fishing rods. A little less than a year ago, I posted about a little girl and her dad who caught a big fish. It's happened again. A little girl from North Carolina and her father landed a 21 pound catfish! That comes to just a shade over 9.5 kilos!

Let's be fair, though. This was done on 6 pound test line. The other fish was caught on four pound test. ( I hope they know I was kidding!)

Not all cats meow!

giant catfish
nationalgeorgaphic.com

As soon as people find out I have a fishing blog they start offering advice. “You ought to write about this…Or that.” I know they mean well but fishing is a “niche” topic. Writing about a specific type of fish would further divide an already limited audience. For instance, I think I’d probably lose a lot of American readers if I indulged in my obsession with reddies!
