I wonder what form of mysticism the fish subscribes to.
Holy Moley Frijoles!!!!!
That thing is uglier than my ex-wife (given the teeth I have to assume it is a close relative).
8 days to bring it? Man, start a novel: “Call me Jeremy...”
The tigerfish - believed to be a deadlier version of the piranha - has 32 teeth that are a similar size to those of a great white shark and has been known to attack humans and even crocodiles, the UK’s Daily Mail reports.
Mr Wade said he used catfish as bait for the tigerfish and a 91kg rod and line.
After carefully avoiding the creatures razor-sharp teeth while posing for photos, Mr Wade said he returned it to the river soon afterwards.
Big deal...I have 32 teeth, too.
Dump some breeding stock into Falcon Lake.
This is a different one caught in June:
The kids and I have watched most of his shows - very entertaining.....
I’m not sure this is a new story. I watched the episode where he caught this fish back in June, thus it presumably was filmed maybe a year ago. Was a good episode though.
It’s nice to take the kids fishing,(as bait.) lol
Reminds me of a childhood fear I was always a little leery about swimming in the St. Croix river probably because I have 5 brothers and they told me sharks could be in it that they could have made their way up from the ocean lol.
I had it in my head there were monster fish in it and of course it only made it worse when I dove in one time right into a huge sturgeon.
I swear I thought my heart was going to give out before I could swim to shore (a relatively short distance as the big dock really wasn’t that far out since it deepens quickly) if I had known about that thing I probably would have never swam in it at all.
the hell was pelosi doing for a swim way out THERE?
cat fish that were as big as Volkswagen’s..
There are some biggies in Mid-West resevoirs. Been a few years, but a young boy water skiing behind his dad’s boat, was getting pulled under. A catfish had it’s mouth around the boy’s legs. He survived to tell the tale.
I love snapping turtle stories...big as car tires, pulled into small boats....

You clearly were led into a sucker punch. I hope you didn’t leave squid marks on your underwear.
Released in Florida would they eat the Pythons?
