New Bait Option?

My guess is they are Wels (one "l") Catfish, which are common throughout many places in Europe, but there are plenty of species of silurian catfish and I'm no expert on identifying them. They all tend to have that eel-shaped tail.

Wels don't typically grow to be 100kg+ monsters throughout most of their range, but the illegally stocked wels kitties in the Rio Ebro that became giants made the species famous. The Rio Ebro has had its ecology COMPLETELY changed by humans in the past 200 years, devastating the native species but making a great habitat for wels cats, the common carp, and other non-natives.

I love that video laugh I know people use bird-lures for big esox on occasion, but I think that big aggressive channels and maybe even flatheads would sometimes take the opportunity to eat a bird if presented with it.
