Eyes on you


Have you ever felt like someone is looking at you? That strange feeling of someone staring right through you with those empty, hollow eyes.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water . . .

A friend fed his channels but wouldn't let anybody catch them out. Man, they got big. Then one day they started dying. By the dozen. He sent a couple off to be autopsied and the verdict was swift and sure: heart disease and old age. Bottom line: stock channels when they're as long as a dollar bill and catch and fry'em before they get to 1 1/2 lbs. Granted, then you don't get pets. His favorite was Old Half Lip, which tilted the scales at 18 lbs. Half Lip is legendary because he (she) pulled a rod and reel and the lawn chair it was sitting in off the dock. No problem for Lip, he/she drug the whole rigamarole anround the pond until they finally snagged the line and retrieved all. Lip's still out there. Broke a kid's line off at the bank just the other day.

Twin Lakes retirement community in Wichita has a pond/lake that is accessible from the N. parking lot.. The monster i saw was at least 4ft. in length.

Pocahontas Iowa in the city park. Cats strike as fast as you can bait your hook. Perfect fryers too, about a foot-and-a-half in length.

According to Lawrence legend, wasn't a guy fishing in the Kaw pulled in and drowned by a catfish once up a time?
