Be On The Lookout For A Flathead Catfish Thief

Recommended Posts

Well I was doing my daily (living vicariously threw You-Tube) flathead catfishing and while searching videos I happen to stumble on this.

Get a "load" of this video smirk

He also has a couple uncle craig's ad's in the lost and found section about this??? Is this a joke?

He has this posted at You-Tube:

Quote:
I caught a fish too big to bike home. I tied it off and came back with a friend in the morning. STOLEN most likely by a Carver, MN local. This location was hard to get to under a RR bridge and someone knows something? If your friend showed up from 6-26-09 TWO DAYS AGO with a monster fish its mine. it has a hook mark on the left cheek, and it has black and yellow skin like an idaho potato.. then white to a red belly. The record for Flathead is 70lbs.. and I think mine is bigger. It's bigger than my Weimaraner.

It must be a joke grin

Well for one thing its not as big as he thinks it is and second it looks like the fish was foul hooked which means its not a legal catch.

Lastly...if I came across a fish tied up with no one in sight, that thing would be released faster than you can say state record. smile

LOL, 50 maybe! I too would have released it back to the wild, and not even thought twice about it. I wonder what he was thinking about doing with a fish that size anyway? To whoever released the fish, good for you! For whoever tied it up, I think it was illegal what you did, and I wouldn't be putting my name on any of this and advertising tieing the fish up and leaving it!

Might have to start calling them spuds laugh

6-26-09 Lots of guys on the river that night, as it was a BPCL night. I'm sure I would've threw a KOTC logo on it and had a snapshot. smile

Well hopefully it was set free and didn't go home in the trunk of a car.

lol I'm reading this and thinking wow this guy must have been Papa Grumps scouter.

All jokes aside this guy is an [PoorWordUsage]. Yes I'm going to put it out there that I willingly broke the law and then while out it might as well put out a video and craigs list ad. WOW good job on the find and release. Hopefully someone will have pics of the release on here soon.

Just as a side note did he say what he tied it too. One would think if not tied properly the fish would 1 brake the line 2 brake the branch tied too or 3 tied to close to the show the yotes drug it off. Wait or 4 some decent person saw it tied there and released the pour thing.

Stolen?? [PoorWordUsage]?

You suppose the fish just got away? What'd he tie it up with something? Did it come loose? Rope break?

Just seams "fishy". Story possibly fabricated to add some drama to a big fish vid?

HKK... we're kinda thinking the same thing there. I bet the thing just came loose somehow. I mean you have a big sand beach, what do you tie it to?

first off if even a doubt that it was state record (I dont think it was)I would of been baby sitting it all night until it was verified but that goes back to another thread that we had many photos with measurements andthe like.2ndly I heard of thirty lb cats bending apart the d ring on a stringer. most likely escaped and is free and I also would of set it free after some pics of the monster cat tied up but could never claim it if I didnt catch it, and the BPCL is all about honesty and honestly I had one tied up bigger than that by a bridge in savage grinlaugh and that one was stolen laugh

Wow stupidity at it's finest. Some people that are on the river are just plain stupid. I was out tonight and two guys came up and saw we had his spot and they decided to fish there anyways and then they are throwing their trash into the river and such. Also they released a Sheephead from 20 feet up on the bank and the thing died...I really hope these types of people don't call themselves outdoorsmen.

I'll admit it, I rallyed the catfish armies to come release one of their own from a cruel death at the hands of a moron. It was me!

lol.

I was sure I saw a sasquatch down there that night. I think it was stolen by the sasquatch.

I have witnessed a sasquatch stealing a flathead before.

Ok, Ok, I will fess up..... I was up there, took it, and brought it home and ate it. I didn't gain 60lbs, so it wasn't a state record. But it tasted good.

    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
