The stomach of a catfish is kind of like a box of chocolates in that you never know what you’re going to find.
Catfish are not picky eaters. If it’s food… they’ll eat it. If it’s not food, they still might eat it.
People have been know to use bars of soap as bait to catch them since they hunt by scent and will take a bite out of pretty much anything that has an odor. There has been plenty of reports of people finding random objects inside of catfish they fillet in addition to more common things like fish, turtles, rats, etc.
Though the snake was already dead, it was still a spooky surprise for him and the lady holding the camera.
Suddenly having your hands on a venomous snake of that size is not something you anticipate when you’re cleaning a fish and understandably enough to make ya taken aback for a second and give you goosebumps.
I love a good fried catfish sandwich, but I’m not sure I would be able to get over the mental hurdle of eating a fish that was filled with big ole venomous snake like that.
Ok. So Brandon Price goes fishing early this morning and I go out to video him fileting his biggest catch today. I had already remarked to him that I thought the fish was pregnant because it’s stomach was huge. Quite a surprise when we realized it indeed was not pregnant! Looking back at the video you can see that I was oblivious to what was coming out of that fish! I’m still shaking!! 🐠 🎣 🐍
