Gotta wonder about some folk....like the German family that kept a pet eel in their bathtub for 50 years.

Dog food? I wonder if the catfish will appreciate this? I can't imagine anyone keeping this fish. It would require quite a lot of dog food to keep it fed! 8O

That fish is going to pollute that pond in a hurry and likely kick the bucket.

I don't even know how any regular angler would get a 50lb. fish home! Most people don't have gigantic containers/livewells big enough to bring home a fish that size.

Geez, a Flathead Catfish? They are among the ugliest catfish in existence!



See what I mean?

(And no that is not me in the pic! )
