Default NBA Catfish

Subject: TRUE TEXAS FISH STORY


Now this is a fish story!!




A guy who lives at Lake
Conroe

(50 miles north of Houston ) saw a
ball bouncing
around kind of strange
in the lake and went to
investigate.


It turned out to be
a flathead catfish that had
apparently 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.
The guy tried
numerous times to
get the ball out,
but was unsuccessful.
He finally had his wife
cut
the ball in order to deflate
it and release the hungry
catfish.

You probably wouldn't
have believed this,
if
you hadn't seen the
following pictures:
