True Fish Story... with photos

A guy who lives at
Lake Conroe 

(50 miles north of
Houston) saw a ball bouncing 

around kind of strangely in the lake and went to 


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 guy tried numerous times to get the ball out, 

but was unsuccessful. He finally had his wife cut 

the ball in order to deflate it and release the hungry 


You probably wouldn't have believed this, 

if you hadn't seen the following pictures: 


Be kind to those who have problems.

Because sometimes in life

everyone bites off more

than they can chew ...
