Me and some buddies were out catfishing last night night. The one guy had a real nice solid run he set the hook and nothing there, so he thought. He reeled up and on the end of the line was just the head and a few guts of a 6-8 pound channel cat. It stunk really bad so it had been dead for some time. Do you think a bigger cat had ate this one and then my buddy pulled it out of its mouth. or was this something just floating downstream and hooked his line when he reeled in. The thing is when we threw the cat remains back in the river it floated and if he hooked them while reeling in, it would have had to been sunken.

My guess would be, that it was dead, and that part was just flowing down the river and it happened to grab his line. I could easily be wrong though.

Ya that or a flat did try eating this fish but ended up spitting it out while laying on the bottom and it just so happened to get stuck on a branch or structure on the bottom.

Maybe it was the ghost of Kitty Past, taking one last run?

Turtle!

I guess it would depend on how fast the current was, the size of your bait fish and the strenth of your clicker. Maybe I could see it floating into your line. I would say turtle was being greedy grin

Maybe he hooked a big fish after it swallowed the bait and while in the gut it hooked this half digested big channel cat head.

I think that makes for a good story whistle

I think that I am going to have to agree with Shack. I think that a turtle hooked that onto his line, then speed off with a big grin on its face.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
