Default 75 pound catfish

me and my uncle went to toledo bend in louisiana and went spearing for catfish. we dove down by a boat dock and found the catfish in a hole in the boat dock we speared him in the belly, we had to cut a hole in his mouth and tie a string in the hole and hold the string, he was so big he got stuck in the hole, we had to dig him out with our hands, we finally got him in the boat, he weighed 75 pounds, ill try to get pics soon

You're supposed to noodle for them. LOL That way you are not sure who has who. My nephew has a scar on his face where they got ahold of a big one like that. He stuck his head in the hole to try to pull it out and it clamped on around his face and his two buddies had to pull him out of the hole.
