Dave, why didn't you think of using nutria for fishing bait? Beats selling them at K. Falls!


My fear of moving stairs is escalating!

I always suspected flatheads ate muskrats and ducks

I thought it was a beaver with a body grip trap snapped over top of its head

Was the trap roped off instead of chained?


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Looks like a wells cat. Likely found floating, near death, because it couldn't get that critter down (I've seen videos of other fish this way.). They tied a rope on the animal and pulled it out. I don't see any trap.

I watched a Flathead eat a duck one time on the Little Kanawha River in Gilmer County WV. The Duck was swimming by and suddenly the Cat Fish just pulled it under. The Duck was only in about 2 feet of water. The Catfish was laying in a Beaver Den opening under water. We were getting ready to noodle when we watched it.


God please keep they 19 fallen UBB miners out of trouble up there.
