Kyle Naegeli recently caught this giant 2 pound mudcat fish in his Texan neighborhood's storm sewer system. According to Kyle, also known as 'The Fish Whisperer', "I was using shad (a tiny fish) for bait and had to use a net to pull him out. Hopefully I can catch more like this and even bigger this summer."
Sewer fishing is the new fad among enthusiasts. There are multiple species of fish that swim from the ponds and into the storm drains, lie catfish and bluegill. They are inedible, of course, but the sheer pleasure of catching something alive out of the sewage system that isn't a rodent or a pest is the biggest thrill. Kyle says that he first tried it on a bet with his dad, but has caught many fish since and returns them right after.
Anyone wants to go fishing?

      I thought you stated it was a "Giant" mudcat, that's a minnow compared to what we catch in Arkansas, "Giants" start at 5 lbs. then they get big.

      Haha Great for kid entertainment, but back in the day, when I lived in Texas, we always threw back, to grow up, anything under a foot unless it was a perch! ROFL Totally agree with Arkansas! That and I was never a fan of mudcat due to their diet, even if they were not found in a storm drain!
