A fishy story
Bookmark and Share

A man who lives at Lake Conroe, (50 miles north of Houston) saw a ball bouncing around kind of strange in the lake and went to investigate.

It turned out to be a flathead catfish that had apparently tried to swallow a basketball which became stuck in its mouth!!

The fish was totally exhausted from trying to dive, but unable to because the ball would always bring him back up to the surface.

The man tried numerous times to get the ball out but was unsuccessful in doing so.

He finally had his wife cut the ball in order to deflate it and release the hungry catfish.

You probably wouldn’t have believed this,
if you hadn’t seen the following pictures:

The strange ball bobbing in the lake caught the man’s attention

When he got closer he could see it was a catfish who’d managed to get its jaws around a basketball

He used a pole to guide the fish closer to try and get the ball out but it was too firmly wedged in.

Finally his wife cut the ball to let the air out

and with a couple of tugs, the ball came out and the catfish was free to swim away
and live happily ever after .
