Videos: Catfish Eat Pigeons and Giant Trevally Torpedo Baitfish

By Tim Romano

Here are two videos that you have to see to believe. The first is a handful of catfish calmly sucking pigeons off the bank. I'm not kidding. When I showed it to Deeter and asked him what he thought about it, he quickly replied, "Haven't you ever used the size 36/0 Chernobyl Pigeon?"

The second shows the sheer speed and power of tackle-busting GT's or Giant trevally in the Maldives. Watch as they absolutely reek havoc on a school of baitfish. It's impressive and scary at the same time.

Enjoy.

Wow, those catfish are nuts. I've seen the videos of killer whales doing that to sea lions, but thats crazy. And the speed that the Trevally come into that school of bait fish is incredible, I've seen many blitzing striped bass and bluefish but the baitfish along the shore were never even close to as worked up as those were in the video. Cool stuff

VAHunter540,

Honestly I don't know. I think you could be right though as the vid is shot somewhere in Europe I believe.

yeh, those are Wels catfish- you can tell by the long, skinny tails

I would have liked to have seen how many baitfish ended up stranded on shore after that run- bet the seagulls moved in next

those Trevallys were taking a risk of ending up on shore too, but I guess they know what they are doing
