This is a 51 pound blue catfish that was caught in our swimming hole in Okatibbee Creek.
Notice the Gatorade bottle in his mouth in the bottom photograph.
The creek runs along the back side of our pasture and feeds out of the Okatibbee reservoir behind our property line.
It was caught on a trout line during the night.
I sure am glad we didn't have a run in with this fella
while we were swimming the day before.
Heck, maybe we did and just didn't know it!
I think I'll keep this one a secret from the children!
Oh dear Lord!
