Catfish that swallowed a basketball

I came across this earlier, some of you may have already seen it.


Bill Driver, who lives in Wichita, KS, saw a ball bouncing around kind of strange in the lake and went to investigate.

It turned out to be a flathead catfish who had obviously tried to swallow a 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.

Bill tried numerous times to get the ball out, but was unsuccessful. He finally had his wife, Pam, cut the ball in order to deflate it and release the hungry catfish.

and for all of you that have doubts about this story

heres proof

I've seen some monstrous catfish. Those guys that do the noodleing are crazy. I would never stick my hand in some hole that I can't see hoping to grab a monster catfish

You wrap bacon around it and then fry it like that? That sounds delicious...
