Hullo, sonicshadow, another Jeff/James birthday addition. I'm… - Salvador Dali in a lawn chair.
I'm invisible without 3D glasses.

I'm still oggling at birdofparadox's noodling post. I'm even more afraid to get in lake water now, even though most of these catfish aren't in the United States.

It's a wels catfish, found in Europe. These British guys (and it's also a "sport" in the United States, too, but we don't have catfish this big here).

The sportsman wait until the catfish are holed up and spawning, reach their hands down in a hole, and wiggle their fingers like worms, and then wrestle these seven-feet-long, 200 pound catfish.

http://www.snopes.com/photos/noodling.asp is the first site I saw, but it's somewhat incorrect. These particular guys aren't from Oklahoma. They're Brits.

They have over 700 pictures of their catches from around Europe here: http://xvella.free.fr/photos-eng.php?size=0&sub=21&id=49.
