I don’t know what’s stranger; the video showing two Frenchmen catching a 250-pound catfish, or the YouTube channel dedicated to catching catfish. I might just be late to the party, but I wasn’t aware of any sort of catfish subculture. I wasn’t aware of a catfish anything. I thought catfish were left alone because they spend their days eating fishy farts and empty coke cans. I wouldn’t mess with something that could eat a coke can.
I was under the impression that catfish were like water-logged vagrants. They kind of float around and expose themselves to everyone in the K-Mart parking lot while sucking down ketchup packets that they found in the trash. The fish version of that doesn’t sound very appealing. Then again, Frenchmen eat frogs and snails, so I guess they’re into that sort of thing.
