Really does anyone know the size of the catfish under the dam on the river@ the asheville highway bridge?I came across an article from 1968 that a diver was swallowed by one while inspecting the dam before they shut it down,and they never could catch the fish to retrieve his body,and the divers encountered other fish that large and refused to go back down.Is that really true?Just how deep is it there?

They did finally catch that fish. I forget now how much it actually weighed, but they mounted it and you can see it. It's on the wall in the fishing section of Bass Pro Shop. You know, the one in Del Rio.

I bet that is why the sub was spotted in the river. They are going to torpedo the catfish.

That was no catfish, it had to be Moby Dick whose color is no longer as white as it once was! Don't worry though, Captain Ahab will take care of him in due time.

I'd guess that a sperm whale would be shooting blanks after a swim in the Nolichuckey.

I don't know about catfish, but I heard there were plenty of suckers under the bridge at the dam.

Capn Ahab are you still on the trail and getting any closer? We've got to lay some of these rumors to rest and get to the real truth.

I am.....I caught one on my harpoon the other week it was dern near 2700 lbs that's the biggest I've seen in a while.....and I seen the bones of about 4 people and some fishing bait...id be willing to bet it came from that thar macys.....and that fish had dern near 5 eyes....best I figure it was contributed to the waste of a nuclear submarine......
