A Walking Catfish For Martin.

Postby Yellowstone7 » Tue Mar 01, 2016 6:57 pm

Hi Everyone:

Martin wrote and said he would like to have a Walking Catfish for his new Philippine outings. It took a bit of doing but I finally found some decent pictures of the fish. Usually long skinny fish are very difficult to build and get to look right but I thought this one came out OK. Below are some pictures of the Walking Catfish. The African Walking Catfish grows to about 48 inches long. The Asian Walking Catfish are usually a bit smaller. 8)

So there you are. You can look forward to catching this very unique fish in one of Martin's outing soon! :lol:

Hi Martin and Stanley,
I know how it is to be hacked Martin, It took AVG guys 10 hours to fix my computer.
Another excellent fish Stanley, looks like that one could walk right out of the water and bite you on the rump.

Hi Martin and Roger and Everyone:

Glad you liked the Walking Catfish. This fish is an air breather and can travel on land over some distance without water. Here is a picture of this fish wriggling through some mud flats. This catfish, unlike some of its cousins that have no teeth, does have sharp teeth. So cover your bumps when you see one! :lol: :lol:
