The Catfish and the Good Samaritan

Rate this post

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 don’t believe this. But we have pictures!

Sometimes in life, we bite off more than we can chew.
So, it never hurts to lend a helping hand!

  1. LOL… yeah… MAYbe… 😉 Isn’t that unreal? It’s a bit funny, at first, if you picture him trying to dive and he can’t because of the air in the ball, but then realize he can’t take care of it himself..Poor thing… I’m just thankful these good people happened to be there to ‘lend a helping hand’ 🙂

  2. Big catfish!

  3. Is this TFOTM’s first fish story?
