Flooding in Tampa, Florida is allowing catfish to swim up into people’s backyards, making for some easy fishing!

Parts of Florida have been experiencing some heavy rainfall for the better part of the last month. Flooding in Tampa has caused roadways to be closed, flights to be canceled, and left catfish free to roam where they please.

One man in Tampa awoke to see his backyard looking more like a small pond. Even more shocking was the fact that about a dozen small catfish decided to move into it.

This video would be any avid catfish angler’s dream.

I still have a hard time thinking those catfish were actually in this backyard. Really makes me wonder how the heck they got there because it doesn’t look like they are anywhere near a river or pond.

If I ever woke up and had that many catfish magically swimming around in my backyard I wouldn’t be worrying about my dogs harming them. I would take that as a blessing from the fish gods before firing up my fryer as I went to collect them.
