I did this when I was younger, mostly at Eagle Mountain and Lake Worth around boat ramps. Pulled a few mud cats out biggest one was just under 35lbs. Had a 10lb (guessing) blue cat nearly break my finger off.... after some scary moments and finding holes big enough to drive a VW beetle into I decided to stick with the rod and reel.

It definitely gets your blood going!

I have never seen a big catfish down there personally I've got a lot of good size live bait but no big catfish I've had a few break the line but I didn't know if it was a diver or a gar or catfish or what. I always catch big catfish at Lake Tawakoni and Cedar Creek but never down that way I think that place is fished out.


You ever heard of moray eels?

I had a buddy who used to feed one almost daily, He went out one day during a windy day and was feeding it. He thinks the cloudy water got the eel confused, It bit him in the pinky area. They couldn't get the infection to settle down, eventually he had to have 2 fingers removed and a little part of his hand.

Now the best part, He did go back after he was healed and feed the eel again.

Did this several years ago when I still lived in TN. Never again. I grabbed/it grabbed me, then I got jerked under the water while I was trying to pull it out of the hole. Not very fun.

We were diving a channel edge in The Keys and I saw a moray eyeing my buddy's foot in front of him. I swatted it in the head with my speargun and told my buddy. Don't know if it was actually about to grab the foot, but it sure looked that way. After losing a tug of war with one (the ONLY one) I had ignorantly speared, I'd hate to think about one grabbing my foot and pulling back into the coral..

Jim, I've caught moray eels on rod & reel while fishing out of Ensenada, Baja California. They are STRONG! Something tells me you'd lose that particular tug-of-war that you describe.
