It looks like this flathead catfish may have let his hunger get the best of him!
Videos like this always get me pumped up. Big catfish doing big things!
The folks at Glenn Flowers Guides caught this hearty flathead trying to swallow a large blue catfish head first. It is unclear what happened before the camera started rolling, but one thing is for sure: this fish bit off more than he could chew.
Watch the video below to see the incident for yourself!
If you are a catfish fan, I’m sure you have seen similar instances of fish attempting to swallow larger portions then they could handle. However, usually those portions consist of partially deteriorating fish scraps, not other live catfish.
If you have some friends who are hooked on cat fishing and think big bait is a waste of time, be sure to show them this video to set them straight.
