    i found a good site for catfisherman. its called the The Brotherhood of Catfisherman. interesting site to say the least. listings for every state. im trying to hook up with the clinton area on june 25. i cant actually go as i have to work, but jsut wanna go meet a few of them.

    mad information there. there is also threads for other fish too . as well as hunting and boating. they also have a tiny politcal section that i had to actually ask permission to access. not sure why though, wasnt really too interesting. but everything else about cats in over there.

    I saw the news story on TV and they indicated that the fish would be kept alive in an aquarium at a Cabellos store in Kansas. It sure is one big ugly fish!

    That is very cool! I am taking my grandkids out fishing this weekend. It will be the first time the youngest has ever been and she is just soooo excited. She is 6 years old and just a riot to watch her talk about going fishing....we have covered all the extenuating circumstance from "what to do if she catches a whale" to " what if the boat sinks because the fish is so big?"
