Lite day: Fish Story

from - smijer

I don't know where this picture came from. It was circulating on e-mail when I picked it off. It looks authentic, though. I would say that's not an American catfish. My friend who is an avid fisherman says something about the shape of the fins.. blah blah blah... it is definitely not American. I say it's much bigger than the ones that live here, but what do I know?

Thar she blows:
